New Hampshire launches committee to oversee AIDS services
June 04 2005 12:00 AM ET
A possible reduction in federal funding prompted New Hampshire governor John Lynch to sign a bill creating a legislative committee to examine how services are delivered to HIV-positive people. The committee aims to coordinate with various agencies across the state to align resources and programs. "The study committee will show us how we can win this fight, and it's a fight we can win," said state senator Iris Estabrook, the Democrat who sponsored the bill. The state Department of Health and Human Services says about 1,000 HIV-positive people live in New Hampshire. It predicts that number will increase by 50 new cases a year. (AP)
