U.S. Will Pay $2.6 Million to Train Chinese Prostitutes to Drink Responsibly on the Job
The National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAA), a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), will pay $2.6 million in U.S. tax dollars to train Chinese prostitutes to drink responsibly on the job.
he grant, made last November, refers to prostitutes as "female sex workers"--or FSW--and their handlers as "gatekeepers." "Previous studies in Asia and Africa and our own data from FSWs [female sex workers] in China suggest that the social norms and institutional policy within commercial sex venues as well as agents overseeing the FSWs (i.e., the 'gatekeepers', defined as persons who manage the establishments and/or sex workers) are potentially of great importance in influencing alcohol use and sexual behavior among establishment-based FSWs," says the NIH grant abstract submitted by Dr. Li.
Feds Will Spend $400,000 to Study Drinking and Sex Habits of Homosexuals in Argentina
Monday, May 04, 2009
(CNSNews.com) – The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is funding a study that seeks to discover a link between drinking and having sex among homosexuals in Argentina.
The study will send researchers to six bars in Buenos Aires to interview both patrons and proprietors in an effort to discover what it is about those bars that may encourage the risky behavior.
The study began on Sept. 30, 2008, and runs through Aug. 31, 2010. It already has cost taxpayers $198,776. By the time the project ends, it will have cost $403,902, according to NIH.

Well taken into consideration the amount of business that US does with China and the many American CEOs and their parties that visit the nation of China I guess that this to keep them safe from catching HIV while taking advantage of the oldest profession in the world.
I guess that the prostitutes biggest business is the foreign men visiting China.
It is reprehensible that money is wasted in this way while in America we have lost 5 million jobs and need 7 million to be back to pre recession numbers.
But instead American workers and tax payer get to be oppressed so Business men can get clean prostitutes with better drinking responsibility while in China.
