Abstract

Minority AIDS groups, such as the National Minority AIDS Council and a number of community-based organizations have been working to bring HIV/AIDS issues to the attention of legislators in hopes of influencing future budget decisions. Their recent lobbying efforts are fueled by the fact that HIV and AIDS disproportionately impact African-American and Latino communities, resulting in some dying from AIDS before they even start antiretroviral treatment.
