California Gov. Signs Law Creating Organization to Coordinate, Expand HIV/AIDS Prevention, Services for Blacks

October 11, 2005

  • "Governor Signs Historic Bill to Address HIV/AIDS Within California's Black Community," City of Los Angeles AIDS Coordinator Office: California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) late last month signed a bill (AB 1142) into law that aims to address the disproportionate impact of HIV/AIDS on the health of blacks in Los Angeles, the Inland Empire, the Sacramento area, San Diego and the San Francisco Bay Area. The law -- which contains no funding and prohibits the use of state general funds for its implementation -- requires a not-for-profit organization be set up by Jan. 1, 2008, to expand and coordinate a statewide prevention and services infrastructure to help support provider networks, as well as to coordinate research, data and funding services for HIV/AIDS-related issues concerning blacks (Los Angeles AIDS Coordinator Office release/Business Wire, 10/3).
