[News] Gates Foundry Quits India and Leaves Government to Pay for US Patents

Hash: SHA1

Bill Gates Foundation ‘uninstalling’ its Program from India: Clean but there
will be Major System Failures

,----[ Quote ]
| Bill Gates has held up signs that clearly indicate the end of Avahan, but has 
| promised funding for other health problems. But the end will not happen 
| without supplementing an addition of 80-million-dollar cash into the program 
| to “sustain” it as if the initial $258 millions were rendered without 
| thinking of sustainability. Now the total 338-million-dollar question is: 
| Will this elephantine set-up, which has emerged knowingly or unknowingly, as 
| a result of the Foundation’s generous donations, really “sustain” when even 
| the Indian Government is refusing to take it over due to its high cost 
| implications?

Journal critique on Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation grant pattern

,----[ Quote ]
| New Delhi: The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s pattern of funding in the
| form of grants for global health programmes and projects has been criticised
| in a research paper in The Lancet.
| The paper, by David McCoy of the Centre for International Health and
| Development, London, and others, is accompanied by a commentary by Robert E.
| Black of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, U.S., and
| others, and an editorial. Dr. M.K. Bhan, Secretary, Department of
| Biotechnology, is a co-author of the commentary in his capacity as a
| scientist of the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi.
| “Although it is driven by the belief that ‘all lives have equal value,’ it
| seems that the Foundation does not believe that every voice has equal value,
| especially voices from those it seeks most to assist,” said the editorial.
| The commentary said very limited direct funding to low-income and
| middle-income countries is “arguably the most unfortunate imbalance in the
| research portfolio of the Foundation.”
| [...]
| “Gates Foundation is not a passive donor,” observes the paper.
| “The Foundation actively engages in policy making and agenda setting
| activities; it has representatives that sit on the governing structures of
| many global health partnerships; it is part of a self-appointed group of
| global health leaders known as the H8 [that includes the WHO, UNICEF, GAVI
| and the World Bank]… and has been involved in setting the health agenda for
| the G8.”



Dr. Rath rages against Bill Gates and the African Aids Conspiracy

,----[ Quote ]
| Since it is public knowledge that the Gates Foundation has placed strategic
| investments into the pharmaceutical industry, it was only a question of time
| until the question would be answered whether Gates is serious about
| controlling diseases or whether he is just another spin doctor of the
| pharmaceutical “business with disease” who helps to expand and promote
| diseases under the deceptive veil of a “Mother Theresa”.

| principles – the laws – of the pharmaceutical ‘business with disease’.

| MediaNews did buy the Mercury News with a loan from Bill Gates' foundation,
| and is in the process of paying back that loan by publishing information
| without much journalistic or technical integrity.  
| Specifically, I wrote “One might think that the San Jose Mercury News, being
| located in Apple's backyard, would tend to trumpet the company's success. One
| would be wrong... Apple's corporate proximity to San Jose is trumped by the
| Mercury News’ need to publish low cost, highly sensational news to make
| enough money to pay back Bill Gates for the favor of his humanitarian loan.”

| say that investing responsibly would just be too complex for them
| and that they need to focus on their core mission: 'There are
| dozens of factors that could be considered, almost all of which
| are outside the foundation's areas of expertise. The issues
| involved are quite complex...

| My background is finance and accounting....
| However, the Gates Buffet foundation grant is nothing more than a shell
| game in which control of assets for both Gates and Buffet remain the same.
