Santa Rosa Press Democrat

The system of HIV/AIDS care in Sonoma County has been buffeted by financial challenges.

The amount of money flowing into the county from the federal government and the state has been cut by at least $1.7 million.

Funds from the state to the county and independent providers for treatment, care, prevention and testing fell from $2 million in fiscal year 2008 to $1.3 million last fiscal year.
