The profit potential of the destruction of the family in africa is immense for disaster capitalists. Everything from real estate to “medicine” to “criminal justice” to banking and tax collection stand to benefit from the economic hemorrhage resulting from the mortal wounding of human families and communities, which will have either no effect or an adverse effect on net HIV incidence due to increased vaginal abrasion (see second article linked below). The usual bogus UTI and phimosis canards are also trotted out from the wax museum of medical madness like zombies that just won’t die. At least they aren’t worried about masturbatory insanity any more.
Self serving medical lies and coverups die hard.
No mention of how much tax money this self-adulatory bureaucracy is spending on this child torture boondoggle.
But the US government isn’t under satanic influences.
… The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS, or UNAIDS, recommend voluntary adult circumcision in high HIV-prevalence countries like Swaziland to lessen the chance for HIV’s spread. They, along with UNICEF, also recommend early-infant male circumcision (EIMC) be implemented in parallel with adult circumcision programs. Health officials say that not only will infant circumcision help protect boys from HIV when they become sexually active later in life, but that it also protects infants and boys from serious health complications such as urinary tract infections and paraphimosis, a condition that can lead to pain and swelling in the affected area, and may require surgery. Three years ago, Swaziland’s Ministry of Health turned those recommendations into action and launched a nationwide program with assistance from the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through USAID, UNICEF, PSI and Jhpiego, a development organization affiliated with Johns Hopkins University.
In less than three years, the program has provided 1,300 voluntary circumcisions to boys [??] across the tiny independent kingdom within the borders of South Africa. USAID’s support directly contributed to 1,226 of these procedures….
Swaziland is a traditionally non-circumcising country. Therefore, the introduction of early-infant male circumcision requires intensive community awareness and sensitization, training and buy-in of health care workers, and patience as the country begins to accept a new HIV intervention whose benefits become apparent in the long term.
To spread the word about the procedure to expectant parents and others in the country, USAID created the Lugotjwa Lusemanti campaign, which loosely translates to “bend the reed when it is green.” Through posters, brochures and media outlets, parents learned about the health benefits of circumcision and about why the ideal time for the procedure is soon after a boy is born, while he is still in a health facility.
The effort also recruited and trained volunteers to speak with expecting mothers, fathers and hospital staffers about infant circumcision. And, at Swaziland’s annual trade fair, the project hosted a special event called the “Baby Fair,” where mothers-to-be could attend a fashion show featuring pregnant models; visit stalls set up by local businesses selling baby-friendly products; and talk with peer educators about infant circumcision.
“I was scared of getting my baby circumcised, but after talking to some nurses, my boyfriend convinced me that it was the right decision to take and that it would benefit the child in the long term,” said Qwabe….
