California: San Francisco Mayor Restores Cuts to AIDS Budget

June 20, 2005

After discussions with Board of Supervisors Budget Committee Chairperson Tom Ammiano, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom restored $1.5 million in proposed cuts to the Department of Public Health's HIV/AIDS budget for the 2005-06 fiscal year. The money will go to 20 organizations that provide HIV-positive clients with nonclinical services including case management, health and risk education, and treatment advocacy. Jennifer Petrucione, mayoral spokesperson, said savings in workers' compensations costs allowed the city to reallocate the money and maintain level funding of just under $10 million to local programs this year. A total of $57.5 million will be spent on HIV/AIDS programs in San Francisco, about $4 million less than last year, reflecting cuts in the city's share of Ryan White Care Act funding.
