At grants.gov there is a $30 million grant opportunity for HIV/AIDS training in UGANDA under the Presdent’s Emergency Plan for AIDS(PEPFAR). Yes, Uganda! A country currently underway to enact legislation to kill gays and imprison folks with HIV/AIDS. Why not withhold the 30million from a country that overtly deny human rights of gays and people living with HIV/AIDS? Even with the recent attempts to slightly amend the bill by Religious bigots, still, there remains such hatred under the disguise of Religion?
Also, which four groups will receive this pot of money? Will it be more faith-based groups agitating Ugandans to kill and imprison gays and people with HIV? Pastor Rick Warren has most likely used an enormous pot of grant dollars to promote the Ugandan Kill Gays bill. Let pastor Rick train his pals in Uganda with church offering. Ugandan pastor Ssempa, who recently rejected president Obama’s criticism toward Uganda, said he sold thousands of pastor Warren’s Driven Purpose book in Uganda. The US should not spend 30mil on Uganda untill the Kill Gays bill has been defeated.
The purpose of this program is to strengthen the capacity of the Government of Uganda to meet the increasing need for HIV/AIDS service delivery training including pre-service and in-service training. Funding will support efforts at the national level to plan, coordinate, implement, supervise and perform quality assurance for HIV/AIDS training. Although this announcement specifically refers to HIV/AIDS training, activities should be coordinated with principal non-HIV/AIDS stakeholders for an integrated approach, and training may be expanded to cover other priority public health concerns as appropriate.
