Ohio: HIV/AIDS Prevention and Treatment Programs Cut

October 2, 2008

Among the $198.3 million in new state budget cuts announced by Gov. Ted Strickland's office Tuesday, HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment programs were cut by $400,452; abstinence and adoption education programs were cut by $300,000; county mental health agencies lost $10.2 million; and childhood immunization programs received a $523,667 cut. Strickland ordered across-the-board reductions of 4.75 percent for the current fiscal year due to the poor economy. "The governor understands the difficulties and pain that these spending reductions may cause at the local level," said Keith Dailey, Strickland's spokesperson. "These are difficult decisions, but these decisions are necessary."
