$1.4bn “Wasted” on African anti-HIV Program

A $1.4 billion U.S. taxpayer-funded anti-AIDS campaign to teach Africans sexual responsibility has failed completely and the money has been wasted, it has emerged.

The campaign forms part of the George W. Bush-created U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).

According to a new report in the Scientific American, the latest waste of money “was supposed to prevent the spread of HIV—but it didn’t work.”

The Scientific American report revealed that a “rigorous comparison of national data from countries that received abstinence funding” from PEPFAR with those that got none of the funding, showed no difference in the age of first sexual experience, the number of sexual partners, or teenage pregnancies—all aspects of behaviors which are linked to a higher risk of becoming infected with HIV.

PEPFAR was funded by Congress with bipartisan support solely to fight AIDS in Africa. It included billions to distribute anti-retroviral drugs, but one third of the money went to “HIV prevention programs” aimed at teaching sexual responsibility.

This included sex education classes in schools and public health announcements on billboards and the radio.

According to the PEPFAR website, the organization operates in the following African states: Angola, Botswana, Burundi, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Haiti, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, South Sudan, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.



According to the most recent HIV overview published by UK Charity Avert, Sub-Saharan Africa has the most serious HIV and AIDS epidemic in the world.

In 2013, an estimated 24.7 million Africans were living with HIV, accounting for 71 percent of the global total. In the same year, there were an estimated 1.5 million new HIV infections and 1.1 million AIDS-related deaths.

Southern Africa is the worst affected region and is widely regarded as the epicenter of the global HIV epidemic. Swaziland has the highest HIV prevalence of any country worldwide (27.4 percent) while South Africa has the largest epidemic of any country—5.9 million people are living with HIV.

In Africa, AIDS is primarily a heterosexual disease, in contrast to the West where it is primarily a homosexual disease. The reason for this is because HIV is, like any sexually transmitted disease (STD), the product of sexual promiscuity, rather than any particular sex act.

In other words, the higher the degree of sexual promiscuity—that is, the higher the number of different sex partners—the greater the chance of catching an STD, including AIDS.

HIV thus disproportionately affects those groups who are most sexually promiscuous—or sexually irresponsible—homosexuals and Africans.

  1. Why is it that politicians are not jailed for their total incompetence and stupidty? They all seem to be total degenerates! Obviously brains aren’t a necessity to be a politician, just greed!

  2. You would think that experienced Governments recognised when it was futile pursuing an objective when all the historic signals signposted failure. I guess when you are spending taxpayers money its not so critical particularly when there is no apparent shortage of those funds. I wonder what Obama thinks about this?

    1. You may gather what Hussein Obama thinks of this from the following: In his 2009 “economic stimulus” program was included $824,000 for a program to teach black men in sub-Saharan Africa how to wash their cranks after having sex.

  3. Wait until they all start going to Europe
    and spreading their illnesses. Their
    aim is to have sex with as many white woman as possible which has already been stated by their kind. That lousy old hag merkel started this crisis along
    with all the other leftist globalists. Just
    remember you cannot take the jungle
    out of them.

  4. When the threat of infection is reduced by talk of “cures” for HIV the African mentality interprets the “talk” as a signal to carry shagging anything on two legs, including poultry.
    You’ll also find that statistics of infections, deaths etc in Africa are hugely underestimated due mainly to poor communication in country areas. The South African defence forces have an infection rate of HIV approaching 90%. Infection in the general population is above 35%. These figures are manipulated for political reasons!

  5. Some of the countries listed in the article, like Cameroon, Lesotho and Malawi, are proud members of the British Commonwealth, aren’t they?…

  6. Well, what can anyone really expect? I mean there you have a complete buffoon as a president of South Africa for example who believes that you can cure aids by just having a shower? And in the same country the sangomas (a.k.a witch doctors) are telling the other boons that by sleeping with a virgin you can cure aids, hence so many baby rapes there. So this is the mentality, in a country which is supposed to be the powerhouse of Africa and so on; no amount of money will cure that mentality, instead they’re lining their own pockets with which ever money someone is stupid enough to send them.

    1. Does South Africa still have the atomic bomb? Does the “country” remain a nuclear power? If so, then…

  8. Think of this expenditure, white Americans, when the IRS is coming after you for your money that you earned. Think of this expenditure, white Americans, when the Democrats talk about the need to raise taxes on anyone.
