Federal Government Gives New Mexico $3.3 Million for AIDS Care

April 11, 2003

The Department of Health and Human Services is providing $3.3 million to help supply medical care, support services and prescriptions for people with HIV/AIDS. The grant is part of $1 billion in HHS money to be shared among the states and territories; this includes $289 million based on the number of people with AIDS in each state; $693 million to buy medications through state-run AIDS drug assistance programs; and other targeted funds. New Mexico is getting $1.29 million based on population, $2 million to buy medications, and $16,786 under a provision that calculates the number of minority group members with AIDS, said Rep. Tom Udall (D-N.M.). "Poverty unfortunately is a common symptom of AIDS, but these grants to states will help us ensure that people with AIDS can get needed care and services," said HHS Secretary Tommy Thompson.
