AIDS Drug Assistance Program in Crisis

Autumn 2010

Over 3,500 people with HIV are on waiting lists for lifesaving antiretroviral drugs. Many more lack access because of other funding cuts and program restrictions. Congress and President Barack Obama must act now to make sure all persons with HIV have the treatment and care they need until health care reform begins in 2014.

Your voice is needed. Please join Save America's ADAPs and be part of a national grassroots movement to demand full access to HIV medication for all who need it. You will learn all the tools needed to communicate with your elected officials before and after the November elections about the ADAP crisis.

To join, send an email to mfriedman@projectinform.org with "ADAP" in the subject field. Include your name, city, and state in the body of the email. You can also join on Facebook by typing "Save America's ADAPs" in the search field.
