Obama Seeks Extra $65M for HIV/AIDS in FY2011

The Obama administration has asked Congress for an additional $65 million for HIV/AIDS funding for fiscal year 2011, according to a statement from the White House Office of National AIDS Policy (ONAP). The additional funding breaks down to $35 million for HIV prevention programs and $30 million for AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAP), which are administered by states. If approved, this would raise federal ADAP funding to $885 million, a $50 million increase from this year.

He should spend less on prvention and more on medicine because they have proved that prevention metheds are not always the way to getting rid of this virus

This is great news, especially for those states who have cut ADAP services. I am fortunate to be in a state where ADAP is a top priority and whose State Health Services Department is pressuring HIV drug suppliers to lower costs. I only wish those savings could be realized in all states, as it could help save lives and lower the HIV infection rate overall. Without ADAP I would be up the proverbial creek without a paddle.
