Since the closing of the Whitman-Walker satellite clinic in suburban Takoma Park, MD two years ago, HIV/AIDS care in the area is hurting, reports the Washington Post. Many need to choose between traveling long distances and piecing together services from a range of providers in different locations.

The main Whitman-Walker center in Washington, D.C. is still in operation and offers one-stop access to a range of services, but it takes all day to get there and back from Takoma Park.
