$8.7 Million in CDC Funding for HIV Prevention in San Francisco

December 29, 1998

Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) today announced $8.7 million in Centers for Disease Control and Prevention funding for HIV prevention efforts in San Francisco. The cooperative agreement award can be used for a variety of HIV prevention activities including: public information campaigns; individual, group, and community level prevention interventions; counseling, HIV testing, and program evaluation activities.

"Funding from CDC has been critically important in supporting innovative and effective HIV prevention programs, and San Francisco has lead in the development of many of these programs," Pelosi said. "While new treatments hold promise for treatment of HIV disease, the national rate of new HIV infections is unabated, and we must remain vigilant in our support of HIV prevention efforts."

As a member of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor-Health and Human Services-Education, Pelosi has made increased funding for HIV prevention and care a top priority. Rep. Pelosi thanked the Clinton Administration for its efforts on behalf of HIV prevention and care funding.
