North Carolina: HIV Program Caps Enrollment
January 26, 2010
On Friday, North Carolina's AIDS Drug Assistance Program stopped enrolling new patients, the result of state budget cuts and a dramatic spike in residents seeking assistance. Last year, state legislators allocated $11 million for ADAP, approximately half of its previous budget, said Jacquelyn Clymore, head of North Carolina's HIV/STD Prevention and Care branch.
