Georgia Gets $3 Million to Improve Access to HIV Drugs
October 24, 2011
In response to an application it filed in December, the Georgia Department of Public Health has received $3 million for the state AIDS Drug Assistance Program. GDPH will use the money from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to assist the 1,732 patients wait-listed by ADAP. Treating each patient costs about $10,800 annually. State officials also are working to move low-income HIV/AIDS patients to alternate funding sources that provide similar medication assistance and physician care.
