Georgia to Cut Staff for HIV Prevention

December 23, 2011

Georgia Health News: A loss of $3.7 million in federal funds is forcing Georgia to reduce its workforce for HIV prevention. After an inquiry by Georgia Health News, the Department of Public Health this week acknowledged that 20 people in state health districts have been notified they will probably lose their jobs in January, and that an unspecified number of staffers at the department level have received the same notification. The statement said the reduction in funding "will have a substantial impact on the state's HIV prevention work." The agency said it is working to soften the blow as much as possible (Miller, 12/22).
