Press Release

President Obama: Address the ADAP Crisis!

July 8, 2010

President Obama: Address the ADAP Crisis!

AIDS Drug Assistance Programs are critical in providing medications to people living with HIV/AIDS who have no other access. Unfortunately, many state ADAPs have been forced to cut services by reducing eligibility criteria, changing formularies, and closing enrollment. As of July 1 over 2,070 individuals in 11 states are on waiting lists to receive their life-saving and life-sustaining medications through this program. Without immediate additional funding the situation is going to get much worse. Next Tuesday at a White House reception for the HIV/AIDS community, President Obama is expected to announce the release of the first ever National HIV/AIDS Strategy, we need to remind the Administration that we need an immediate plan of action for people fighting for their lives who do not have access to HIV-medications. We need your help to ensure that the Obama Administration takes action to help those in need!

We know you've called and emailed, but we need your help AGAIN!


How You Can Help

Call the White House at 202-456-1111 and leave the following message:

My name is ____________ and I am calling today because President Obama must address the fast growing crisis in AIDS Drug Assistance Programs and act on the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS (PACHA) resolution recommending $126 million in emergency funding for AIDS Drug Assistance Programs to eliminate wait lists.
