Waiting list for Florida AIDS Drug Assistance Program continues to grow

Numbers released today show that Florida’s AIDS Drug Assistance Program waiting list keeps on growing.

The AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (known as ADAP) provide medications for the treatment of HIV and AIDS for people who cannot afford to pay because they are unemployed, uninsured or underinsured. It has been in a funding crisis since last year.

The National Alliance of States and Territorial AIDS Directors’ latest ADAP Watch (.pdf) released today shows that Florida has 4,157 people on the AIDS Drug Assistance Program waiting list. Last week, according to ADAP Watch, the number of people on the state’s ADAP waiting list was 4,068.

Nationwide, the number of people on ADAP waiting lists has dropped to 8,804 in 10 states. As of last week (.pdf) that number included at least 9,000 people in 11 states.

Florida’s Bureau of HIV/AIDS data shows that as of Sept. 9 at least 4,100 people were on the Sunshine State’s AIDS Drug Assistance Program waiting list. Miami-Dade County had 1,055 people on the waiting list; Broward County had 673. Hillsborough, Orange and Palm Beach counties each had over 300 citizens waiting.

A Twitter campaign was organized Thursday by the ADAP Advocacy Association to call on President Obama to end the AIDS Drug Assistance Program waiting lists.

Brandon Macsata, CEO of the ADAP Advocacy Association, told The Florida Independent, “We feel that to this point he’s been pretty quiet, and when we’re approaching 10,000 people on the waiting list for the medication we know will keep them healthy, productive members of their communities, it’s just unacceptable.”
