Teaching South African Men How to Wash Their Genitalia - (Los Angeles, CA) $823,200

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) secured a grant for $800,000 in stimulus funds to study the effects of a genital-washing program in Orange Farm, South Africa. Investigators will attempt to teach "uncircumcised African men how to wash their genitals after having sex," and hope doing so will prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS.
