...over 10 percent of your population has a terminal, sexually transmitted disease... maybe money stuff isn't your biggest issue...
-- JOHANNESBURG (AP) -- Thousands of South African protesters marched on the U.S. consulate Thursday to demand the U.S. increase its AIDS funding for Africa, weeks after U.S. officials said their biggest AIDS fund would not substantially rise.Yeah... it's like nobody cares, huh?
Officials from the international program, known as PEPFAR, say this year's budget had increased only marginally, from $6.8 billion in 2010 to nearly $7 billion for 2011.So... just for the record... when the U.S.A. is acting as the "world's policeman"... that's evil.
But you don't have a problem with them being the "world's urologist"?
How exactly does that work?
RELATED: Gotta have priorities, huh?
The world invests $8-billion to $10-billion (U.S.) into AIDS every year, more than 100 times what it spends on clean-water projects in developing countries.Unbelievable.
Yet more than two billion people do not have access to adequate sanitation, and about one billion lack clean water.
