Following the Money: Tracking Federal AIDS Appropriations to Address Disparities in HIV and AIDS Treatments in the United States

The Joint Center's Health Policy Institute, recently released a report entitled "Following the Money: Tracking Federal AIDS Appropriations to Address Disparities in HIV and AIDS Treatment in the United States", which explores the path of federal funding in HIV and AIDS prevention. The Report finds that HIV/AIDS is not one epidemic in the United States but rather has become multiple epidemics affecting different communites at different rates and through different vectors of transmission. Tragically, some of the communities least prepared to deal with the spread of HIV are communities that are most vulnerable and have received the least federal resources to combat the disease. There are several strategies needed to ensure the resources flow to communities proportionate to need.
