April 2007
Ford Reports;2007, Vol. 37 Issue 2, p7
The article reports on efforts to combat HIV/AIDS in the U.S. South. The region is home to nearly half of the nation's new AIDS cases. Forty-one percent of U.S. citizens living with HIV reside in the South, and an estimated 46 percent of new AIDS cases are found in the region. An initial $1.55 million Ford grant, along with $250,000 from the Elton John AIDS Foundation, is helping the National AIDS Fund establish a new initiative known as Southern Regional Expansion of Access and Capacity to Address HIV/AIDS.
