Florida: AIDS, HIV Patients Getting Help From Pharmaceutical Companies
September 27, 2010
Drug companies have stepped in to assist low-income Floridians needing HIV/AIDS medicines following reductions in the state-sponsored AIDS Drug Assistance Program. Florida's ADAP provides free treatment to more than 11,000 HIV/AIDS patients.
"I'm not shy about criticizing pharmaceutical companies. But I have to say they have helped us respond to this crisis so we don't have lapses in drug treatment," said Thomas Liberti, chief of the state department of health's Bureau of HIV/AIDS.
