Ryan White Care Act - Revisions?
      #193899 - 05/31/06 09:16 PM

U.S. Senate Committee Approves Major Revisions to Ryan White
CARE Act

A U.S. Senate committee voted 19-1 to approve a bill that would change the
Ryan White CARE Act by allocating more federal HIV funding to southern and
rural states, a move that could result in less funding for many urban areas.
The measure proposes several changes to the CARE Act, which sets funding
levels for HIV-related services throughout the United States. The proposed
changes include: 1) revising formulas for funding calculations to include
HIV cases and not just AIDS cases; 2) requiring that 75% of CARE Act funding
is spent on primary care; 3) requiring that facilities receiving federal
funding conduct mandatory HIV testing; 4) creating a tier system to fund
both small and large cities; 5) directing unused funds from states into AIDS
Drug Assistance Programs (ADAPs); and 6) mandating a minimum AIDS drug
formulary list that all state ADAPs would have to provide to patients. Sen.
Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.), the only senator to vote against the bill,
said states with urban centers are most affected by HIV and should not have their funding
reduced. Clinton said that New York state could lose million under the proposed
revisions. The bill now moves to the full U.S. Senate for debate.

I have met both of them 4 times in Aspen over the years and sat down with Bill last summer talking about his HIV/AIDS work. I hugged him and then hugged Hilary. They are quite a team no matter how much Bill fucked around on her... Its quite a bit a different story now 10 or so years later.
