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.

ADAP is kicking hundreds of thousands of people off the list, in many states anyone who is also on medicare is now being put off the list too, this is a huge issue and the private community, charity and other social resources are getting thin. If we do not take action soon were going to see a return to the days of 1989 and 1992 when medications were not available or just did not work. All it takes is a few days off meds and disaster can become the new normal. Billions go to other nations..
