Why should anyone be surprised that the Clinton Foundation has pulled a fast one on those suffering from AIDS in Africa?
The Real Tragedy of AIDS – TechCentralStation
With great fanfare, the Clinton Foundation last year announced that it had negotiated a price of $140 a year for ARV treatment, about half the typical price in Africa. But that figure is a cruel hoax, as a transcript of a meeting in Mumbai between AIDS activists and officials of Indian drug companies confirms. Hardly anyone pays it.
The representative of Cipla, one of the largest Indian firms, said that the $140 offer had rigid unpublicized conditions, including “large, confirmed irrevocable orders,” which were never met. Clinton promised 200,000 patients by 2005, but another Indian drug official said that the foundation had not produced even 40,000.
An activist from Cameroon then said, “The Clinton deal is not working…. I’m surprised that you believed what Clinton told you.”
Said Cipla: “He is a very good talker.”
I mean, after all, this is the man who was embraced as the “Gay Messiah” by our community; yet repeatedly sent zeroed-out AIDS funding budgets up to Congress only to have them overturned and increased by the Republican-controlled Congress since 1995.
Will our gay leaders everrrrrrrr learn?
