AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts, Fenway Health Forge New Partnership
June 28, 2013
On June 27, Fenway Health and the AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts announced that both of their boards had approved the formation of a "strategic partnership" of the two organizations. They will join to improve care and bolster the stability of services for people with HIV/AIDS. This is especially important since HIV/AIDS patients are living longer, but federal and state support has diminished. AIDS Action President Rebecca Haag noted that her organization's infrastructure is at a "breaking point," because state funding for AIDS services has decreased by 38 percent, while Massachusetts' number of HIV-infected people has increased by 44 percent.
