Feds Spent $800,000 of Economic Stimulus on African Genital-Washing Program
<!-- END .article-info -->Monday, September 13, 2010
By Matt Cover (http://cnsnews.com/source/73645)


(CNSNews.com) – The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), spent $823,200 of economic stimulus funds in 2009 on a study by a UCLA research team to teach uncircumcised African men how to wash their genitals after having sex.

The genitalia-washing program is part of a larger $12-million UCLA study examining how to better encourage Africans to undergo voluntary HIV testing and counseling – however, only the penis-washing study received money from the 2009 economic stimulus law. The washing portion of the study is set to end in 2011.

“NIH Announces the Availability of Recovery Act Funds for Competitive Revision Applications,” the grant abstract states. “We propose to evaluate the feasibility of a post-coital genital hygiene study among men unwilling to be circumcised in Orange Farm, South Africa.”

Because AIDS researchers have been unsuccessful in convincing most adult African men to undergo circumcision, the UCLA study proposes to determine whether researchers can develop an after-sex genitalia-washing regimen that they can then convince uncircumcised African men to follow.

“The aim of the proposed feasibility study is to evaluate the feasibility and acceptability of a post-coital male genital hygiene procedure, which participants will be asked to practice immediately post-coitus or at least 12 hours after,” reads the abstract.

Entitled “Community-Based HIV VCT: South Africa,” the name of the broader umbrella project, the program plans to test how well received the penis-washing regimen is among South African men.

If most of the men in the study wash their genitals after sex, are willing to do so after the study ends, and report that their partners accept the regimen, the researchers will develop another study to see if the “penile cleansing procedure” actually works to prevent HIV infections.

“If we find that men are able to practice consistent washing practices after sex, we will plan to test whether this might protect men from becoming HIV infected in a later study,” the grant says.

The study’s lead investigator Dr. Thomas J. Coates was the fourth highest-funded researcher in the country in 2002 and is currently conducting HIV research on three continents.

CNSNews.com asked both Coates and NIMH the following question: “The Census Bureau says the median household income in the United States is $52,000. How would you explain to the average American mom and dad -- who make $52,000 per year -- that taxing them to pay for this grant was justified?”

Coates, who was unavailable for comment, directed CNSNews.com to ask grant-related questions of his assistant, Darya Freedman, who did not respond.

The NIMH also declined to respond to CNSNews.com’s question.

Speaking on this practically, I wonder how many jobs they created with that $800k. I mean, I can pretend to give them the benefit of a doubt here that this program will create jobs, and that's what the stimulus bill is about. I wonder how many people will be taking home paychecks thanks to this program.

Not to deflect the discussion of public funds, but I figured most African men were circumcised. You read occasionally about their manhood rituals where they describe something that sure sounds like circumcision, but maybe that's only a small number of tribes or something.

And with that, you'll never read another post from me about African men's penises.

Without arguing the merits of whether or not we should be spending money on this kind of thing, the grander point is that it came from the Stimulus package. If a researcher or three conducting the study costs almost a million dollars, surely you can see again why most of us rail against government spending. Because it's done stupidly for stupid things. In this case, it was not even done for the reason they said it would be...economic stimulus. Surely, any of us could think of many ways to get more bang for 800k than hiring a couple of researchers.

The merits are completely relevant. As long as it's a) a worthwhile project with some potential societal benefit and b) creates jobs, I don't see the problem with where the funding came from. The calculus on this is: jobs + chance to save thousand of African lives.

Yep. It's one of the few things he didn't botch.

In the case of South Africa, the president has/had some pretty unscientifically-supported views on AIDS transmission. His drug policies apparently led to some 330K deaths (per study cited by Wiki). So I guess this is an attempt to dig them out of a misinformation hole.

Hey, at least SOMETHING would get stimulated.

Hope and change at its best.

It is apparent from the responses in this thread the majority of our liberal friends don't want to defend this very much. I'm glad to see sanity at least for a little bit is coming back to this forum.

The merits are completely relevant. As long as it's a) a worthwhile project with some potential societal benefit and b) creates jobs, I don't see the problem with where the funding came from. The calculus on this is: jobs + chance to save thousand of African lives.

The gf just got an offer yesterday to work in an STD research grant project. These projects do create jobs.

OK. It's a matter of what a "worthwhile project" is, and whether it creates SUSTAINABLE jobs.

Agree to disagree.

My wife is going to request some of those research dollars after getting mine really good and clean the other day.

You're a sexist. (Just wanted to get on the PC bandwagon).

The result of the study: It's now racist to call someone a "dirty pecker".

Why can't they wipe it off on the curtains when they're done like everybody else?

Didn't get that from the OP/article.

It's arguable, but I think it's safe to say he had to hire a researcher or three to conduct the study.

Good grief.

You could save the curtains if the government can provide an African man to wash your pee-pee. That could create a lot of jobs.

Dude, that's a pickup line.

Was the offer made at the bar at Applebee's?

I've made plans to travel to East St. Louis this weekend to hand out moist towelettes and instructions to strangers.

They could have saved all that money and just asked Flunkie, Orange, Banyon, Pittsie, Reaper et al

They have had plenty of experience studying black men's penis's.
