North Carolina will clear ADAP waiting list

North Carolina will clear ADAP waiting list

Officials at the North Carolina health department on Thursday announced that new funding will allow them to begin providing anti-HIV drugs to all 960 people on the state's AIDS Drug Assistance Program waiting list, the Charlotte Observer reports. State lawmakers recently appropriated an additional $2.75 million for the program, and the state also will use some of the $20 million in federal money President Bush granted to the programs in July. The first 585 people on the waiting list will begin receiving anti-HIV drugs in September, while the remainder will start receiving medications late in the fall, says Steve Sherman, ADAP coordinator for the state.
