"A report by the US Government Accountability Office says that for every dollar PEPFAR [the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief] spends on condoms to prevent infection, it is spending two dollars on promoting abstinence and fidelity. Much of the money goes to church groups, or to major advertising campaigns. For example, visitors to Uganda are greeted on the airport road with a huge hoarding, paid for by the US, showing a wholesome young woman and the words, "She's keeping herself for marriage. What about you?"

That is the lamest thing I've ever seen, and I watch House every week.

Mmm, AIDS and cripple jokes. What more does this post need? Besides kittens.
