Uganda Refuses Gay HIV/AIDS Help

The Ugandan government blows our mind. Though they acknowledge that the nation’s gays are a part of the HIV/AIDS problem, officials still refuse to treat them:

[The government] said on Monday it would not focus any of its HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment programmes on outlawed homosexuals because the east African country is short of funds.

“Gays are one of the drivers of HIV in Uganda, but because of meagre resources we cannot direct our programs at them at this time,” the chairman of the Uganda AIDS Commission, Kihumuro Apuuli, told reporters in the capital Kampala.

State-sponsored programs will instead focus on sex workers, army folk and truck drivers. Vroom-vroom.
