President's FY09 Budget - A Disaster for Domestic AIDS: Congress Must Fund Critical Healthcare Priorities

The President is proposing an increase of only $6 million for the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) which provides lifesaving medications. This does not come close to the anticipated needed increase of $133 million. Despite this mino
