Cambodia: AIDS epidemic follows condom promotion

February 23, 2011

A well-funded condom-distribution and population-control program, funded in part by the United States Agency for International Development, has helped fuel the spread of AIDS in Cambodia, according to Human Life International (HLI).

“These programs, according to the promoters, would have had to stop AIDS,” but in reality “instead encouraged its spread, fueling a culture of sexuality as a commodity,” according to HLI. 160,000 of the nation’s 13 million people now suffer from the disease.
