AIDS Healthcare Foundation Vs. Los Angeles County
November 18, 2013
"Critics of the [AIDS Healthcare Foundation], citing the county audits, have expressed concern that the nonprofit is oriented more toward self-promotion than treating and combating sexually transmitted disease. Medical staff have criticized its management and are involved in a union organizing drive. 'We're David,' AHF President Michael Weinstein insists. 'The county is Goliath.' Los Angeles County is indeed more than a bit Goliath-like in its size -- and even, to some (like the brutally beaten jail inmates), a bully. Fixing its problems will require some heat. But the AHF appears to be bringing only heat, and leaving the light behind." (Los Angeles Times, 11/17)
