  • Georgia has nation’s longest waiting list for HIV drugs

    January 25, 2012 --

    Georgia has the longest waiting list in the nation — 1,348 — for people with HIV to get government drug assistance.

    State HIV funds sought as waiting list grows
    March 24, 2011 --

    The state’s waiting list for people with HIV to get government drug assistance is steadily growing — intensifying concerns that patients won’t get needed medications. More than 1,100 Georgians are on the waiting list — the second-longest in the country behind Florida’s. The program, which needs about $5 million more in state money, instead faces a $600,000 budget cut.
