AIDS Patients

AIDS prevention efforts may weaken and resources for AIDS patients could diminish. Reductions in Centers for Disease Control grants would result in 424,000 fewer HIV tests, Health and Human Services Secretary Sebelius said in her letter to Congress. The AIDS Drug Assistance Program would be unable to provide "life-saving HIV medications" to 7,400 patients, she said. About 7,300 fewer AIDS patients would receive housing assistance, according to Housing and Urban Development Secretary Donovan.
