California: County Discontinues Contract With Inland AIDS Project
February 3, 2009
On Feb. 21, San Bernardino County will discontinue offering Ryan White HIV/AIDS services through the Inland AIDS Project. IAP's approximately 700 clients will no longer be able to access emergency assistance or the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) through the nonprofit.
Officials with IAP, which has locations in Riverside, San Bernardino, and Hesperia, could not be reached for comment. The nonprofit's Web site confirms Ryan White services will no longer be offered as of Feb. 21. The site says IAP will continue to provide home-based services for case management and home-care assistance, as well as transportation services, mental health counseling, and food and housing support.
