Sequestration Cuts HIV/AIDS Programs as Clients Increase

A survey by The AIDS Institute (TAI) shows HIV care is suffering under the federal budget cuts known as sequestration while the number of clients at AIDS service organizations (ASOs) are increasing, according to a TAI statement. Domestic HIV/AIDS programs have been cut nearly $380 million. Of the 131 ASOs in 29 states and the District of Columbia that participated in the survey, 85 percent experienced funding cuts and 79 percent experienced an increase in clients.

I believe all must give up something or an act of sequestration to help bring the USA back into full health within our economic gains to increase social justice acts of passion and care within a united community called the USA.

Well,I would call survey scientist evidence; however, here in Jacksonville Florida under Gov. Scotts leadership in me pushing in order to get a doctor's appointment, labs and proof positive that I am HIV. I have witnessed a lot of state and government contact employment from federal dollars where many are doing nothing, and the waiting rooms are empty and the attitudes are about government shutdown and no passion for their works with layers and layers of departments and paper work without smiles

I have witnessed 24 hours in returning calls on the answer machines from the state employees to now 48 hours, and all take an hour off for lunch to shut down state programs daily. It is these seemly attitudes of all being so busy and no appointments for care, to then come in to see many state employees that outnumber the consumer during my visit. So, I am not sure if the funding is problem or the leadership from top that purposely slows down quality of care and production in a socialist manner
