U.S. to Provide $25 Million to Help Buy AIDS Drugs
New York Times

Kathleen Sebelius, the secretary of health and human services, said Thursday that she would provide $25 million more to help states buy life-saving medications for people with H.I.V. or AIDS.

Advocates for patients said the money was not nearly enough to eliminate waiting lists, which have surged to record levels as people have lost health insurance, along with their jobs, and states have cut their budgets.
