HarborPath Creates a Single Portal for Uninsured Individuals to Access HIV/AIDS Medications
Date:7/19/2012

WASHINGTON, July 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- HarborPath, a new, non-profit organization, has been established to create a program that offers a single place for application and medication fulfillment for uninsured individuals living with HIV/AIDS who otherwise qualify for manufacturer-sponsored patient assistance programs. A "one stop shop" portal will provide a streamlined, online process to qualify individuals and deliver the donated medications through a mail-order pharmacy.

To create the portal, HarborPath worked closely with the National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD) and the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), which provided the seed funding for the organization. On World AIDS Day 2011, President Clinton, building on his longstanding commitment to combating HIV/AIDS domestically, noted the need to fight HIV/AIDS in the United States. 

"HarborPath's new program addresses a critical need, and answers this call for a renewed emphasis on the domestic HIV epidemic," said President Clinton. "I am proud that my Foundation is partnering with NASTAD and other pharmaceutical manufacturers to make sure Americans living with HIV have access to the life-saving medications they need. This is an important step forward in our fight against the disease."

ViiV Healthcare is the first pharmaceutical company to agree to support the program by donating HIV/AIDS medications and funding.

"We are pleased to support HarborPath as it has the potential to allow more patients in need access to treatment and help retain them in care by simplifying the process of getting their complete regimen," said Bill Collier, Senior Vice President and Head of North America for ViiV Healthcare.

HarborPath will pilot the program in states with high need including Alabama, Texas and Virginia.
