HIV Protest: Florida Advocates Rally For Coverage Continuum

Dozens of advocates with AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), the nation’s largest non-profit HIV/AIDS healthcare provider and largest global AIDS organization, protested outside of Florida Medicaid's Fort Lauderdale office earlier Tuesday. 

The protesters are looking to persuade state officials to renew its Medicaid contract with AIDS Healthcare Foundation's Positive Healthcare insurance.

The demonstrators claim the treatments of nearly 2,000 HIV patients will be disrupted.

“The reality is that Florida is the epicenter of the HIV epidemic in the United States today, and people living with HIV should have the right to choose where they receive their HIV care,” said Mike Kahane, AHF Bureau Chief, Southern Region.
