Breaking News: Obama Releases $1.89 Billion in Grants for HIV Funding

Via Sayen CroWolf:

Health & Human Services announced today that it was releasing $1.89 billion in grants through the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program “to ensure that people living with HIV/AIDS continue to have access to life-saving health care and medications.” Approximately $1.213 billion will be sent to states and territories under Part B of the Ryan White Program, with $813 million of that total designated for the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP). Thirty Part B States and Territories will also “receive $40 million in ADAP Emergency Relief Funding (ERF) for the purpose of eliminating or reducing ADAP waiting lists and/or supporting cost containment strategies to prevent implementation of a waiting list,” HHS said. As of Sept. 22, at least 8,785 people in 10 states were on a waiting list to receive life-saving medication.

Obama is doing what he can. He just isn't living up to my expectations.

Having said that...am I voting for anyone else? No.
