S.F. HIV Funding May Face $7M in Cuts Over Next Two Years
San Francisco may have to reduce its HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention services by $7 million during the next two years, The San Francisco Examiner reports. Cuts in federal funding have created a $3.1 million shortfall in the coming fiscal year and $3.9 million in the following year. The city has replaced about $17.5 million of nearly $20 million in federal funding cuts over the past three years to local community-based organizations, but it’s not clear if the city can do it again. Local officials say federal funding has been redirected to places with higher rates of new HIV cases.
