AIDS Foundation of Chicago: Governor's Budget Proposal Hurts HIV Services

March 31, 2009

Facing a deficit of almost $11 billion in fiscal years 2009-10, Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn has proposed a budget that cuts some new HIV prevention and care spending by 3 percent, according to the AIDS Foundation of Chicago. "While troubled by HIV funding cuts, we recognize that budgetary reform is urgently needed," AFC said in a media statement. "We will work closely with Gov. Quinn and the General Assembly to find sustainable solutions in order to ensure that essential state services continue for those most vulnerable due to illness, disability, unemployment and other hardships." "HIV funding reductions will require even more diligence among state officials to ensure continuity of care and strategic investments in evidence-based interventions that yield the greatest results," said John Peller, AFC's director of government relations.
