North Carolina: Funding for AIDS Drugs Faces Budget
June 12, 2013
The two houses of the General Assembly are differing on how much funding to provide for the N.C. AIDS Drug Assistance Program. At times, there's been enough to provide medications to treat HIV for people earning as much as $45,000 per year. At other times, the program has been so underfunded that North Carolina had one of the longest waiting lists for AIDS medications in the country. (Hoban, North Carolina Health News, 6/12)
