• Hear our Voices! Reinstate Enteral Formulas for Patients with HIV/AIDS.
    Coverage for enteral formulas was cut from the NY State Medicaid Budget earlier this year. The removal of supportive calories, protein, and micronutrients has put many malnourished HIV(+) individuals at heightened risk of infection, hospitalization, and even death. For the past 6 months, the Coalition to Reinstate Enteral Formulas Coverage has been educating key NY State government officials that removing enteral formulas coverage from AIDS patients who are losing weight significantly increases the cost of caring for these individuals. WE ARE NOW AT A CRITICAL MOMENT. There are 5 key decision makers who are currently reviewing this issue. Please sign this petition and urge the decision makers to REINSTATE ENTERAL FORMULAS IN NY MEDICAID. With your signature and a short message, your concerns will automatically be sent, and your voice will be heard. HELP HIV/AIDS PATIENTS WHO ARE LOSING WEIGHT. WE NEED YOUR HELP NOW!

  • Save BadgerCare
    The WI Republicans want to help balance the budget by kicking 53,000 adults and children off BadgerCare. Premiums are scheduled to increase as much as 1100%. This is totally unacceptable. This will prevent people from getting cheaper healthcare earlier, and drive up costs with later expensive emergency room visits and preventable hospitalizations. Tell Gov. Walker and the Fitzgerald brothers this is unacceptable.

  • Save Our Supplements and Demand the FDA Withdraw the NDI Draft Guidance!!
    We call on Congress to demand that the FDA summarily withdraws the NDI Draft Guidance and goes on the record stating that the agency will not, now or ever, review, consider, surveil or engage in enforcement activities according to the re-interpretation of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA) evident in its Guidance document but, instead, will honor the law that the American people gave to the FDA (via Congress) to uphold via regulation according to both the spirit, letter, and plain and intended meaning of DSHEA.

  • A Law Needed to Govern Mental Health Care
    According to the Congressional Research Service, there is NO federal law requiring psychiatrists to use real medical care so that a patient can recover. Members of the American Psychiatric Association (APA) use only palliative care which cures almost no one. Meanwhile they continue to suppress orthomolecular treatment which has a 90% recovery rate.

  • Michigan's MLR Waiver
    Because of the new protections in the Affordable Care Act, starting this year insurance companies are suppose to either spend 80% of all premium dollars on actual medical care, or give back to consumers what they don't spend. Michigan's Office of Financial and Insurance Regulation (OFIR) submitted a waiver request so that Michigan insurance companies would NOT have to comply for the nest three years.

  • Support federal resources to fight HIV/AIDS in the South
    The South leads the country in new diagnoses of HIV/AIDS. Death rates in the South are among the highest in the US — 9 of the 10 states with the highest age-adjusted HIV case death rates are in the South. African Americans are disproportionally represented among new HIV diagnoses in the South. 50% of men and 71% of women diagnosed with HIV in the South were African American.

  • Therapeutic Vaccine Consensus Statement
    Almost three decades of experience defining the limits of antiretroviral therapy and identifying key mechanisms of disease progression compels the development of new clinical approaches to address HIV infection. Even a modestly effective therapeutic vaccine would result in meaningful increases in life expectancy and delays in disease progression in people living with HIV on HAART and would allow us to drastically reduce the disparity and non- ability to provide HIV treatment to the more than 50% of individuals around the world living with HIV who still have no access to antiretroviral therapy. Recent data on a number of therapies in advanced stages of clinical development have shown them to be promising candidates for the treatment of HIV and warrant further investigation and support, as well as remind the community that the development of an effective therapeutic vaccine could lead to a functional cure. Therefore, we call for a reform of the international research agenda to prioritize therapeutic vaccine research and ensure that it is properly funded and proceeds rapidly and coherently.
