State Roundup: From "[Georgia] Responds on HIV Drug Waiting List"

January 31, 2012

"There are two pools of funding relative to HIV and AIDS in Georgia -- one aimed at HIV prevention and another aimed at treatment. These federal funds from the Health Resources and Services Administration and the CDC cannot be commingled. The reality is, Georgia is receiving more funding this year, and not less, to address HIV prevention efforts. While the Department of Public Health has received a reduction of $3.7 million in federal prevention funding this fiscal year, the CDC has separately awarded Fulton and DeKalb counties $4.5 million for HIV prevention -- representing an increase in total federal prevention funds allocated to the state of Georgia of $800,000." (Miller, Georgia Health News, 1/30)
