Health And Human Resources Dep’t Announces $80 Mil In Grants For HIV/AIDS Care

Almost $80 million in grants to improve access to HIV/AIDS care has been approved by the Department of Health and Human Services, announced HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius today, ensuring low-income Americans will have access to medication and other treatments.

Approximately $69 million of the funds is coming from the Ryan White AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) to help eliminate waiting lists in 25 states and U.S. territories. The remaining money will be distributed to community clinics nationwide to provide essential care to some 14,000 new patients.

“The entire Administration is dedicated to fulfilling President Obama’s goal of an AIDS free generation and today’s announcement is one more step in that ongoing effort,” said Sebelius.  “These grants will help make a real difference in the lives of Americans living with HIV/AIDS, especially those in underserved communities.”
