Obama Celebrates Gay Man’s HIV/AIDS Day By Giving $1.89 Billion To AIDS Programs

What better way to celebrate honor Gay Man’s HIV/AIDS Day than for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to release $1.89 billion in grants through the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program.

The money, says a HHS rep, will help “ensure that people living with HIV/AIDS continue to have access to lifesaving health care and medications.” Of the total budget, $853 million will go toward replenishing the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP), which currently has a wait list of nearly 9,000 people.

Looks like you really can fight HIV in a bad economy!
