SAC Action Alert: Sign-on to Support ADAP and Ryan White Part C Emergency Relief Funding
March 26, 2013
Below is a sign on letter to the President urging him to immediately redirect $35 million to the state AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAPs) and $10 million to Ryan White Part C programs in FY2013 in order to ensure continuation of care and treatment for thousands of people living with HIV/AIDS. The Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund the government for the remainder of FY2013 does not include $35 million in emergency ADAP funding and $10 million for Part C medical clinics announced by President Obama on World AIDS Day (December 1), 2011. This funding currently is being used by 15 states/territories to provide life-saving medications to individuals living with HIV/AIDS. (AL, AK, CA, CO, FL, GA, IL, MT, NE, NJ, SD, TN, WA, WI, VI) This funding also is supporting key staff at Part C supported HIV clinics nationwide, helping these programs serve more patients. If funds aren't restored, it could lead to an estimated 7,920 clients being removed from the ADAP program and many Part C funded HIV clinics reducing services and closing their doors to new patients.View Full Article
