Gates Foundation Monoculture Accused of Harming World Health Organization (WHO)

Posted in Bill Gates, GNU/Linux, Microsoft at 4:58 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Operation in progress

Summary: Repetition of the accusations against Bill Gates’ impact on medical research, which he allegedly monopolises

FOR those who are not familiar with the facts, The Hindu and The New York Times have already covered this issue with Microsoft co-founder’s monopolisation of medical research. To quote the latter, “The chief of malaria for the World Health Organization has complained that the growing dominance of malaria research by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation risks stifling a diversity of views among scientists and wiping out the world health agency’s policy-making function.” We have many more details here, where Gates' use of disease against GNU/Linux is also criticised. Disease is used as a cause (or an excuse) to inject political agenda.

Adding to evidence that we have already gathered, there is this new publication with an “interesting section on the dangers of Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation monoculture,” to quote Glyn Moody.

Earlier this year the Task Force commissioned studies about the R2D, including one involving the WHO IGWG process, which was done by Lisa Forman, and two other health programs, The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (TGF), and the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR). I was the investigator for the TGF and TDR studies. The citation for my report is as follows:

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases and the right to development. Prepared for the UN Human Rights Council, Working Group on the Right to Development, High Level Task Force on the implementation of the right to development. A/HRC/12/WG.2/TF/CRP.4/Rev.1. 2009 June 18.

This subject of Gates’ role in health has already aroused great interest from more controversial and speculative types like Alex Jones, who believes that there is more than contraception/population control to it. He connects Gates to Eugenics.

    Linking to Alex Jones like he has something worthwhile to say destroys the creditability of this site. I may have to reassess whether it is worth my while to read this site. I want to advance the cause of free software, but if Roy is going to discredit this site by linking to Alex Jones, he not only discredits this site, but he also helps to discredit free software as much as this site is popular.

    I clearly said he was controversial and speculative. You’ll see it if you read carefully.

    Well, keep in mind that Microsoft has people reading this blog and will use any ammo that they can find to attack you.

    I refuse to accept views of people whom I consider out of control and out of touch with reality; Alex Jones is one of those people (Bill O’Reilly is another, as you saw yesterday).

    If people misinterpret my message, that is their problem.

    I remember one time when you misinterpreted my message (a joke) about Microsoft Poland; the funny thing is that many publications did the very same thing later, which only verified my views.
