Ryan White Funding Proposal Demonstrates Neglect of US' Growing AIDS Epidemic, Says AHF
Date:12/17/2007

WASHINGTON, Dec. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) today strongly criticized Ryan White CARE Act funding levels contained in the latest budget package drafted by Congress in order to meet the restrictions of President George W.

Net decreases in AIDS spending at this crucial time will guarantee the continued growth of this country's epidemic."

The Ryan White CARE Act, the nation's primary funding mechanism to provide HIV/AIDS treatment to Americans in need, was reauthorized last year after a lengthy, bi-partisan process that resulted in a long-overdue updating of the bill to addr
