North Carolina: Group Lobbies Lawmakers for ADAP Funding

May 26, 2010

The North Carolina AIDS Action Network dispatched members to the Legislative Building on Tuesday to lobby lawmakers for more support for HIV/AIDS efforts. The activists asked legislators to allocate $18 million in the coming year so the state AIDS Drug Assistance Program can clear its waiting list and accept new enrollees. Many of the advocates wore a sticker reading "602" -- the number of low-income patients they say are waiting for ADAP's help to access HIV/AIDS medications.
