Thanks to the tireless advocacy of Dab Garner, I am aware of more than the pain of losing fake money playing Texas Hold ’Em on Facebook. Today is National ADAP Call-In Day, so it’s important that will all take part and make our voices heard.
Read Dab’s post from Facebook below and consider joining us by placing a simple phone call.
Demand that President Obama Address the ADAP Crisis
AIDS Drug Assistance Programs are critical in providing medications to people living with HIV/AIDS who have no other access. Unfortunately, many state ADAPs have been forced to cut services by reducing eligibility criteria, changing formularies, and closing enrollment. Over 1,596 individuals in ten states are on waiting lists to receive their life-saving and life-sustaining medications through this program. Without immediate additional funding the situation is going to get much worse. With National HIV Testing Day just behind us, we need to remind the Administration that getting people tested is not enough. Treatment must also be available. We need your help to ensure that the Obama Administration takes action to help those in need!
We know you’ve called and emailed, but we need your help AGAIN!
How you can help?
Call the White House at 202-456-1111 and leave the following message:
My name is ___________ and I am calling today because President Obama must address the current crisis in AIDS Drug Assistance Programs. This past weekend was National HIV Testing Day. We know that knowledge of ADAP waiting lists and other access restrictions can keep people from being tested. For many people living with HIV/AIDS these programs are the only consistent access they have to life-saving medications. However, over 1,596 HIV-positive individuals are on waiting lists to access the programs. Relief must be provided so that ADAP clients can receive their medications and additional states don’t find themselves in a similar situation.
