ABSTRACT
Despite a 9 percent increase in the overall AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAPs) budget in the U.S. between fiscal year 2002 and 2003, an increasing number of people living longer with HIV/AIDS, the rising costs of HIV medications, and continuing fiscal pressures at the Federal and state levels have led some state ADAPs to implement cost-saving measures such as capping enrollment and reducing the number of HIV-medications offered. ADAPs continue to be in a difficult situation with the need for HIV/AIDS medications exceeding available resources, said Jennifer Kates, M.A., M.P.A, Director of HIV Policy, Kaiser Family Foundation.
