Georgia Eliminates Its ADAP Waiting List

The waiting list for the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) in Georgia has been reduced to zero, The Associated Press reports. Reaching a high point of 1,600 people, the current list was erased using $8.4 million in emergency federal funding. More than 350 people previously using ADAP were put into an insurance pool for people with pre-existing conditions, which is part of the health care reform law. Advocates are concerned that the list may return if federal budget cuts are implemented.

The lives of HIV+ brethren, particularly those in the municipalities of Georgia, have been greatly improved by alleviation of this state's ADAP wait list. This improved and increased access to life preserving HIV treatments is a good start, but, there are still many issues that impede healthy HIV+ living in all of these United States of America. Increase in governmental financial support for government and not-for-profit efforts at eradication of the problems of living with HIV is a start.
