A Bexar County, Tex., judge last week ordered county officials to fix a recurring problem of underspending federal HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment grants given to the county each year, the San Antonio Express-News reports. Judge Nelson Wolff ordered county HIV services coordinator Anna Resendez to better allocate federal funds given to the county. Last year more than $463,000 of $3.4 million in Ryan White funds went unspent. About $1.6 million over the past seven years was not allocated to area HIV/AIDS service organizations and health centers. Officials with the San Antonio AIDS Foundation have called for Resendez to resign or be removed from her position. Foundation executive director David Ewell said the county's consistent underspending is threatening future funding for its growing population of HIV-infected people and is hampering services for the region's HIV/AIDS patients.
