Millions of dollars dumped into questionable foreign health campaigns
The Obama administration will continue bombarding individual nations with family planning and health-care messages costing tens of millions for each campaign, despite acknowledging that some of its past efforts largely failed.
The administration casts partial blame for these failures on foreign government recipients, some of whom neglected to adequately cooperate with U.S. plans to change cultural beliefs, for example, about contraception and family size.
Islamic leaders in nations such as Jordan rebuffed previous persuasive efforts to increase sterilization and other approaches to reducing birth rates. The administration backed off from that tactic, and instead encouraged Muslims to space out the births of their children.
The U.S. therefore has a new communications program in mind for Jordanians.
Awareness of health programs among Pakistanis likewise has not translated into increased use of those U.S.-funded health services.
The U.S. consequently developed a new information-dissemination initiative for Pakistan.
The administrations solution to the arguable squandering of U.S. taxpayer dollars is to spend even more money on social-engineering endeavors over the next five years, according to planning documents that WND discovered via routine database research.
This discovery comes at a time when Congress is weighing the merits of the administrations FY 2015 request of $46.2 billion for Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs, of which $8 billion is slated for global health initiatives.

Now matched those to GDP
You have to go down 75 spaces to get to the first real non-3rd world country, Israel.
So our tax dollars are going toward a propaganda campaign to decimate the birth rates of our species.
Instead the advanced countries should make having more children a positive thing. And that would include stop the move toward sexualizing children.
Another one is labor classification. A nation with a high fertility rate usually has a higher percentage of their labor force working in agriculture, which implies sustenance farming
Latest demographic projections say that by 2050 Asia will add a 5th billion and Africa will add a 2nd billion for 9 billion total.
By 2100 Africa is supposed to add a 3rd and 4th billion for a total of 11 billion.
Then it levels off, so they say.
child mortality rates are apples and oranges, every country calculates it differently.
A “proverb cube” - is it like a Magic 8 ball?
Ask again later.
That could be, but I don't worry about it. I try to use the CIA Factbook data which figured consistently. Really what you need to figure is the change in the rate, so how they calculate it is not relevant.
So, when a nation's fertility rate begins to fall, life spans increase(however they calculate it), child mortality rates fall(however they calculate it), healthcare levels increase(however they calculate it), incomes increase(however they calculate it), poverty decreases(however they calculate it), and education levels rise(however they calculate it)
I’m sorry, why are we spending any money on this stuff?
How long will this nonsense go on?
We have hungry needy people here, we have neglected vets who need healthcare here, we have obligations that are not being met HERE.
I do not really care if people in other countries use birth control, or are gay, or whatever or not.
We’re not making the Muslims stop killing rape victims or gays, but we’re supposed to fund some “awareness” campaign amoung foreign prostitutes?
Excuse me, they are sex workers, I’m pretty sure they know about birth control, if they don’t I suggest they do some reading.
I’ve had it with our lying profligate government, both parties.
Using our tax dollars against us and our families, have you heard of anything more diabolical?
