Federal Government Awards New York City $100 Million To Treat HIV/AIDS
March 04, 2008
The city is getting some much-needed help from the federal government to assist the growing number of residents living with HIV and AIDS.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has awarded the city more than $102 million dollars in funding through the Ryan White AIDS Act.
Senator Charles Schumer says the money is desperately needed to assist the increasing number of New Yorkers who are living longer with HIV and AIDS.
The funding will provide a number of health services, including medical care and drug treatments.
