After budget talks that almost ended in a federal government shutdown last week, funding for the AIDS Drug Assistance Program will see a $48 million increase this year under the deal that averted the shutdown.
The increase will help provide treatment for the 8,000 people in 11 states who are on ADAP waiting lists, according to the AIDS Institute.
