Izishoshovu ezimelene nokuhushulwa kwezisu zisabisa ngokuhoxa ohlelweni lwe-Aids oluxhaswe iMelika olusindise izigidi zabantu base-Afrika.

Lolu hlelo olwaziwa nge-President’s Emergency Programme for Aids Relief (Pepfar) luxhasa ngemali efinyelela ku-15% wesabelomali sezempilo kuleli.

Ukuphatha kwezwe kwezifo ezithathelanayo kungase kubhidlike ngaphandle kwalo.

Isabelomali sonyaka salolu hlelo esingu-R125 billion kumele siphinde sigunyazwe i-United States Congress ekupheleni kukaMandulo.

Kodwa luvinjwe ngamaqembu amaKrestu aphikelela ukuthi luhlanganisa nokuvinjelwa kokuhushulwa kwezisu.

Inhloko ye-Ezintsha eNyuvesi yase-Wits, yophiko lwezocwaningo nenqubomgomo yomphakathi uFrancois Venter uchaze ukulahlekelwa i-Pepfar “njengokungakholakali.”

“I-Pepfar isindise abantu abaningi futhi iyaqhubeka nokugcina abantu bephila,” esho.

“Uma uxhaso lumiswa imishanguzo yezidambisi gciwane emazweni amaningi angakwazi ukuyikhokhela angayeka futhi labo bantu bengathola ingculazi bashone.”

UBulelani Kuwane oyisikhulu se-Youth Health Africa uthe ukuhoxiswa kwe-Pepfar kuzoba nomthelela omkhulu futhi kuzobuyisela emuva impumelelo eseyenziwe ekulweni negciwane lengculazi kuleli kule minyaka engu-20 edlule.

Uthe i-Pepfar yeseka izifunda zezempilo zakuleli ezingu-27 kwezingu-52 – ezithwala u-80% wabantu abathelelekile.
Lolu hlelo luhlinzeka ngezidambisi gciwane kubantu bakuleli ababalelwa kwizigidi ezine.

I-Pepfar iphinde inikeze abasebenzi ezinye izinsiza ezengeziwe emitholampilo futhi isusa umthwalo ohlelweni oseluvele lunwetshiwe.

Ukuhoxiswa kwe-Pepfar kuzophinde kwenze ukuthi abantu abaningi bakuleli balahlekelwe imisebenzi futhi imiphumela ingase ibe yingozi nakakhulu emazweni afana ne-Botswana, e-Swatini, e-Lesotho, e-Malawi, e-Zambia kanye nase-Zimbabwe.

I-Pepfar idale amanethiwekhi
emitholampilo ehlinzeka ngezinsizakalo ezimbalwa ezihlanganisa ukuhlolwa kwe-Covid-19 kanye nemithi yokugoma.

Womabili amaqembu e-Democrats kanye ne-Republican avumelana nokuvuselelwa kwe-Pepfar ngaphandle kwanoma yiziphi izinguquko njengoba bekwenziwa eminyakeni engu-20 edlule.

Kodwa abammeli bezomthetho bangaphansi kwengcindezi evela emaqenjini amelene nokukhishwa kwezisu banamavoti okukuvimba.

Isihlabani somculo we-rock sase-Ireland ophinde abe isishoshovu uBono uchaze le nkinga ngokuthi “ukuhlanya.”

Noma ngabe kufinyelelwa esivumelwaneni manje, isikhathi siyahamba ukuze kuhlangatshezwane nomnqamulajuqu.

Amalungu ephalamende aseMelika aseholidini kuze kube maphakathi noMandulo futhi bazobe benomthwalo osindayo uma bebuya.

Omunye we-Republican uthe kuyashaqisa ukuthi izinhlangano ezizibiza nge-pro-life zizimisele ukusebenzisa izimpilo zabantu njengengxoxo yezepolitiki.
