NASTAD Releases New Report on AIDS Drug Assistance Programs
August 17, 2007
"ADAP Watch," National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors: The report found that a total of 308 people in Alaska and South Carolina were on waiting lists for AIDS Drug Assistance Programs as of July 19 (ADAP Watch, 8/16). ADAPs are federal- and state-funded programs that provide HIV/AIDS-related medications to low-income, uninsured and underinsured HIV-positive individuals (Kaiser Daily HIV/AIDS Report, 6/26). Alaska's ADAP waiting list has five people, while South Carolina's list has 303 people, according to the report. In addition, the report found that Alabama, Indiana and Michigan have implemented cost-containment measures -- such as capped enrollments or formulary management -- since April 1, when the ADAP fiscal year began.
