U.S. House of Representatives: Don't slash healthcare funding for HIV+ women, children, and families!
We will win!
Mar 19, 2014 — WOW! Thank you so much for supporting the women, children, and families who need Ryan White Part D. We have accumulated over 250 signatures in less than 3 days...because of YOU!
Several organizations are working on behalf of this issue: the AIDS Alliance for Women, Infants, Children, Youth, and Families; Positive Women's Network; Women's HIV Program; Positively U; many Ryan White Part D grantees, and others.
And the community is speaking! A petitioner shared how Ryan White funding helped pay for ARVs when her husband was out of work; another shared a similar story. Petitioners posted about HIV+ friends and relatives. And there are also many signatures of who aren't personally affected, but know the importance of Part D.
Nana, a teen with AIDS, shared how psychotherapy she received with Part D convinced her to finish school and avoid toxic relationships because she now knows that she deserves better.
We must press on--for all the other "Nana"s that are out there!
