More than 500 campaigners, together with people surviving with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA), scattered across Capitol Hill on April 26-28 for AIDSWatch 2010, the biggest national HIV/AIDS advocacy incident, staged annually in Washington, D. C.
This year, the campaigners comprised over 20 Californians, as well as employees and clients from AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA); West Hollywood City Council Deputy Hernan Molina; and Jeffrey Goodman from the L. A. County Commission on HIV.
The AIDSWatch memorandum to Congress was more pressing than ever.
Supporters campaigned for a rise in HIV/AIDS funds, Congressional support for a National AIDS Strategy, and federal respite for cash-bound states such as California.
Budget cut downs have slaughtered HIV/AIDS initiatives in several states and now intimidate state AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAPs), which supply life-saving medicines to low-income, uninsured or underinsured persons subsisting with HIV/AIDS countrywide.
The AIDSWatch agenda centered on the Ryan White Act, Housing Opportunities for People with AIDS (HOPWA), Minority AIDS Initiative and CDC (Centers for Disease Control) prevention plans.
In a study, which supports the extensive usage of medications to help manage the AIDS epidemic, researchers said on Wednesday that HIV patients who used the drugs were far less liable to contaminate their spouses.
