Ohio lawmakers decided in March to forgo almost a million dollars worth of federal health education funds rather than give up their abstinence-only demands. Only $90,000 would have been used to discuss STD prevention in school
sex-ed programs.

A doctor in Loudon County, Virginia, stole painkillers and syringes—and then returned them, used, for patients, the State Board of Medicine found. The local hospital will offer free HIV and other blood tests to more than 160 people seen by the gastroenterologist.

A New York City Division of AIDS Services site left confidential client files on the sidewalk with the trash during spring renovations to the Waverly office, reported city cable news station NY1. Only old and damaged files were supposed to be disposed.
