Study Finds AIDS Funding Has Not Kept Pace With The Progressions Of The Disease In Minorities


 

WASHINGTON,  -- The following advisory was issued today by the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies:

WHO:  Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, Health Policy Institute, Brian D. Smedley, Ph.D., Allen A. Herman, M.D., Ph.D.; and Winifred Carson Smith, Esq.

WHAT:  The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies Health Policy Institute unveiled a study "Following the Money: Tracking Federal AIDS Appropriations to Address Disparities in HIV and AIDS Treatment in the United States."  The study looks at funds and resources provided under the Ryan White Act and concludes that the allocation does not adequately address the needs of the minority AIDS community and fails to reflect the rapid rise in AIDS infection rates in rural, Southern communities, which are primarily African American communities.


WHERE:

Congressional Black Caucus Spring Health Braintrust

The Ritz-Carlton Hotel

Ballroom

1150 22nd Street, N.W.

Washington, D.C.  20037

Dr. Herman presented the study as part of a panel session, "HIV-AIDS and Hepatitis Policies and  Communities of Color: Current Challenges, Positive Solutions." The study is available on the Joint Center's Web site a twww.jointcenter.org/hpi.

The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies is one of the nation's leading research and public policy institutions and the only one whose work focuses primarily on issues of particular concern to African Americans and other people of color. The Joint Center currently is celebrating its 40th Anniversary of service. To learn more, please visitwww.jointcenter.org.
