AIDS Advocates Ask Obama Administration for Increased ADAP Funding
A group of HIV/AIDS organizations, state representatives and individuals wrote a letter to President Barack Obama and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius asking them to increase funding to the failing AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAP) throughout the country, BusinessWire reports. The letter says, “In 2010 an additional $25 million for ADAPs was reprogrammed from unspent HHS funds by Presidential order. We beseech you to find at least another $25 million for an immediate transfer into ADAP for FY [fiscal year] 2011.”
