Colorado to provide $3 million to eliminate ADAP waiting list
July 20 2004 11:00 PM ET
Colorado officials will use $3 million from the state's tobacco settlement money to help eliminate a 315-person waiting list for the state's AIDS Drug Assistance Program, the Denver Post reports. Colorado's ADAP is one of 13 nationwide that has implemented waiting lists, capped enrollment, tightened eligibility requirements, or reduced the number of drugs provided due to budget shortfalls, according to the National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors. It also provides only 18 drugs, including none of the 14 medications highly recommended by the U.S. Public Health Service and the Infectious Diseases Society of America to prevent AIDS-related opportunistic infections. Colorado ADAP director Scott Barnette says the $3 million one-time grant from the state will allow the ADAP to serve 1,000 HIV-positive Colorado residents and increase the number of drugs the program provides.
