The HIV/Infectious Disease Clinic at Elmhurst Hospital in Queens, N.Y., has received a $1 million funding allocation from the New York City council to help improve its services for roughly 1,000 HIV-positive clients, the New York Daily News reports. "We have the opportunity for the first time in 10 years to get and fix equipment," Pete Velez, executive director of the hospital, told the News. The money will also be used to improve privacy at the hospital; currently, curtains are hung where walls should be in some areas.
