Trump's Budget Deal may Help People with HIV
« on: September 12, 2017, 07:32:15 pm »
...at least for the short term (under the terms of the Continuing Resolution now signed into law).  More funding battles for FY 2018 to be staged in December 2017.

From the September 12, 2017, edition of POZ magazine:


From the article:

In the midst of all of these maneuverings appeared some glimmers of good news for people living with or impacted by HIV. On Thursday, the Senate Appropriations Labor, Health & Human Services Subcommittee released a version of its bill that bodes well for people living with HIV when the appropriations process resumes again in earnest as the continuing resolution starts to wind down. The plan would maintain current funding levels for both the Ryan White Program and CDC HIV Prevention, rejecting $213.6 million in cuts proposed in the President’s Fiscal Year 2018 Budget. The bill also would continue Title X family planning funding at its FY17 levels. In another slap to Trump’s budget plan, the Senate Labor-HHS bill fully restored funding to the Secretary’s Minority AIDS Initiative Fund, whose $53.9 million budget had been eliminated in the House appropriations bill, and SAMHSA’s Minority AIDS Initiative programming, which had seen a $17.4 million cut in the House as well.

This is awesome news.  It still needs to be finalized but at least some people in the government sees the need for this funding.
