HIV epidemic and NZAF - a flawed crock
The Society is concerned that despite millions of dollars of taxpayer funds having been poured into the NZ AIDS
Foundation (NZAF) each year, the numbers of new HIV infections diagnosed each year among “men-who-have-sex-with-men”
(homosexuals and bisexuals) is continuing to rocket upwards, along with other nasty sexually transmitted diseases –
syphilis, gonorrhoea, genital clamydia and genital herpes.
It is highly critical of the way Ministry of Health officials and politicians have allowed this absolute crock – the
tiny fringe self-serving gay lobby group NZAF - to have access to so much public money to run such a flawed and largely
ineffective “men’s health programme”.
Furthermore, the dysfunctional NZAF operation which is supposed to be focused largely on preventing HIV/AIDS, has
lurched from one organisational crisis to another (resulting in staff resignations) and has become so highly politicised
in its promotion of the normalisation of sodomy and the celebration of sexual diversity (= gay sex) among its largely
European male supporters; that its flamboyant PC-posturing has made a mockery of the deadly earnest character of the
health message it should be conveying to those it claims to serve. “It's not serving its constituency as it should,"
says Larry Jenkins, NZ AIDS Foundation's fundraising and events manager, who has just resigned. He says NZAF “is a
fundamentally flawed organisation, especially at board and chief executive level.” 
A recent NZAF press release  stated: “Discussion at NZAF’s recent community forums for gay and bisexual men suggested
that unprotected anal sex [‘bare-backing’] was being GLORIFIED through A LACK OF PEER PRESSURE AGAINST THE PRACTICE”
[Emphasis added]. NZAF provides no “peer pressure” against promiscuity. On the contrary its workshops with the gay
friendly titles of “Cock Sure”, “Horny as”, “Queen of the Universe”, and gay-boy pin up competitions, etc. encourage
promiscuity, emboldening HIV+ homosexuals and bisexuals to persist in their unhealthy and unnatural sexual practices –
absolutely deluded by the NZAF mantra of the “safe sex”/condom ‘life-insurance policy’ (in reality condoms at best only
provide 80% protection against HIV transmission).
During the 2005 calendar year NZAF reported “the highest number of HIV infections” were recorded “in the history of the
epidemic in New Zealand”. 83% of the 117 newly diagnosed HIV+ cases were among homosexual and bisexual men – (compared
to 89% in 2004). It also noted the shocking statistic that approximately 33% of persons who actually have the HIV virus
do not even know they have it. And yet such carriers continue to have anal sex with multiple male partners with gay
abandon, unknowingly spreading and receiving the virus as well as a host of other nasty STIs. (NZAF has reported “a
disturbing resurgence of syphilis recorded at sexual health clinics between 2002 and 2006” among homosexuals, as well as
gonorrhoea or chlamydia). A September 2007 report from the AIDS Epidemiology Group reveals that 84 new HIV infections
were diagnosed in New Zealand for the first half of 2007. Maori diagnosed HIV+ rose from 6.4 per cent of all
notifications in 2006, to 11.4% in the first six months of 2007. By far the largest component of those infected in NZ
were sexually active homosexuals and bisexuals – 85%.
The Society believes that the government should pull all further funding of the NZAF and initiate an independent inquiry
into why so much public money has been allowed to be wasted on such an ineffective crock that has failed to avert the
HIV/AIDS epidemic. It is aware that NZAF has taken formal complaints to the Broadcasting Standards Authority over
politicians who have dared to question its policies – labelling its critics as derogatory bigots and homophobes .
According to the NZAF Annual Report dated June 2006, public support for the organisation is miniscule. It currently has
only 158 financial members despite a massive recruitment drive. Members with vested interests – those who draw taxpayer
funded salaries serving NZAF – number a staggering 47. The Government grant and salary refund package to NZAF was
$3,421,301 in the year ending June 2006. Sodomy certainly comes with a price .
Notes and References:
 In March 1985, the AIDS Support Network Trust was established in response to workshops held nationally to deal with
preventing the spread of HIV in New Zealand as well as how to assist those living with HIV and AIDS. The newly
established trust was successful in attracting funding from the Ministry of Health. In August of the same year, the
Trust was renamed the New Zealand AIDS Foundation. The New Zealand AIDS Foundation is a registered charitable trust
which has continued its focus on prevention amongst the group most at risk of HIV infection in New Zealand – men who
have sex with men (MSM).
