Arizona: "Chronic Underfunding" Could Hinder Progress in HIV Treatment, Opinion Piece Says

June 15, 2009

Recent cuts to Arizona's AIDS Drug Assistance Program and other state services due to "chronic underfunding of HIV services at the state and federal level, the increasing cost of medications and the increasing number of persons living with HIV who lack insurance to pay for these life-saving drugs," will likely reverse the progress made in HIV treatment, J. Kevin Carmichael, an associate medical director at El Rio Community Health Center in Tucson, Ariz., writes in an Arizona Daily Star opinion piece. He continues, "Our legislators need to hear our voices and understand that we cannot accept a shortsighted approach to a fiscal crisis that builds in years of HIV-related illness and guarantees significant future costs" (Carmichael, Arizona Daily Star, 6/15).
