"Housing works"
« on: July 29, 2011, 05:54:30 PM »
Although I don't live in the States I try and keep up with what is going on over there.especially with all those who are living with HIV/AIDS, and the growing amount who are fighting to get the Meds they deserve.

I subscribe to "Housing Works" it's a good sourse of information for all those to care or are affected by the Health issues and homless over in the States...here is the link, it's worth subscribing to as it now give regular updates on the ADAP crisis.


As of July 14, the wait list to receive lifesaving AIDS medication through the nation’s AIDS Drug Assistance Programs had risen to 8,689 people across 13 states.

The number of people waiting to receive medication through state-run AIDS drug programs has increased more than 5,000 percent since August 2009, according to the National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors. The federal government has reacted with little urgency, however, allotting just $25 million in additional dollars to the program for FY 2012.

To help readers keep tabs on the growing ADAP crisis, we are now posting the ADAP Watch—the document that tracks increasing cuts to the program—each week, and including it in our Friday morning newsletter.

Housing Works is a healing community of people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Our mission is to end the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS through relentless advocacy, the provision of lifesaving services.

Never knock on deaths door..ring the bell and run..he really hates that.
