Pennsylvania: Corbett Budget Maintains AIDS Funding, Big Cuts Elsewhere
February 28, 2012
Gov. Tom Corbett's recent proposed $27.1 billion state budget includes mostly level funding for HIV/AIDS, with $7.1 million that would be maintained for programs under the state Department of Health (DOH). Funding for the disease, which was cut 25 percent two years ago, covers a comprehensive statewide HIV prevention program that includes community planning, testing and referral services, education, and risk-reduction efforts.
