Mr Putin, The world is watching!

We will be watching the winter games with a very heavy heart. We can only hope that the world's attention, along with the love of community and country, that has descended on Sochi will stay with Russia when the athletes, families, and visitors leave. #Sochi2014 #WeAre1

Late Night Analysis on Ryan White funding in Omnibus Bill Budget released earlier today 1/13/2014

SEC. 5. STATEMENT OF APPROPRIATIONS The following sums in this Act are appropriated, out of any money in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2014 COMMENT: IF NOT OTHERWISE SPECIFIED, the funding for any program will run out on September 30, 2014.


RYAN WHITE HIV/AIDS PROGRAM For carrying out title XXVI of the PHS Act with respect to the Ryan White HIV/AIDS program, $2,293,781,000, of which $1,970,881,000 shall remain available to the Secretary through September 30, 2016, for parts A and B of title XXVI of the PHS Act, and of which not less than $900,313,000 shall be for State AIDS Drug Assistance Programs under the authority of section 2616 or 311(c) of such Act: Provided, That in addition to amounts provided herein, $25,000,000 shall be available from amounts available under section 241 of the PHS Act to carry out parts A, B, C, and D of title XXVI of the PHS Act to fund Special Projects of National Significance under section 2691. • COMMENT Remainder of 2013- Funding Begins 1/19/2014 (because of 3 day -CR) and end September 30, 2014.
FY 2015 – Begins October 1, 2014- September 30, 2015. FY 2016- Begins October 1, 2015 – September 30,2016. So it appears that the RWCA was appropriated these amounts until Sept 30, 2016. Either this is a major typo or the program will have to last 32 months with just one years of PRE-ACA funding.

The Ryan White Program works with cities, states, and local community-based organization to provide HIV-related services to more than half a million people each year. The program is for those who do not have sufficient health care coverage or financial resources for coping with HIV disease. Ryan White fills gaps in care not covered by these other sources.
