AHF to Schwarzenegger: 'AIDS Cuts Are Deadly'

AS CDC Prepares to Release Alarming New HIV Rates; Governor Should Cut Bureaucracy, Corporate Loopholes

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) today urged California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to reconsider and reverse $11 million of proposed budget cuts in AIDS services that will reduce and threaten vital lifesaving care and services for Californians living with HIV/AIDS as he seeks to close a $14 billion deficit in the state budget.
