Congress reauthorized the Ryan White CARE Act, which provides most fed-funded AIDS-related services, last December—narrowly escaping its expiration date. Flat-funded at $2.1 billion despite an increase in demanded services, lawmakers from both political parties spent months debating how to divide the limited pot by region. The bill passed unanimously after legislators compromised: The act will be reviewed again in three years, instead of the usual five. In January, the newly Democratic House approved an additional $75.8 million for 2007, but advocates say Ryan White was funded at $600 million below estimated need and are de-manding more come 2008. “There’s not enough money to fund all of the services that are needed,” says Frank Oldham, Executive Director of the National Association of People With AIDS.
