Report Faults District’s HIV/AIDS Awareness (WaPo, 9/24) – The fourth report card (.pdf) from DC Appleseed “portrays a government that is just beginning to grapple with the scope of the crisis.” Report: “We of course welcome Mayor Fenty’s call for HIV/AIDS to be his top health priority, but sustained, highly visible government efforts to broadly raise awareness of the severity of the epidemic have been absent and reflect a lack of urgency.”  The series funded by the Washington AIDS Partnership, a project of Washington Grantmakers.
