"Save ADAP" Campaign Starts August 12 -- What You Can Do Now

August 9, 2002

About 10,000 Americans eligible for AIDS treatment are now on waiting lists for the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP), because of lack of funds. As we go to press, the AIDS Treatment Activist Coalition is about to release an action alert on what you can do now, especially in August and September. It includes clear, accurate instructions for writing to your Representative and two Senators, for writing to local newspapers on this issue, and for attending any local meetings your representatives in Congress have with their constituents.

If you do not get the alert through an AIDS email list, look for it at You can also email Ryan Clary at Project Inform, and ask for a copy of the Save ADAP alert.
