Pres. Bill Clinton:

The next biggest problem we have with AIDS is in the American South, where I'm sad to say since it's my home region, there's still too much stigma. Stigma against men who have sex with men, against sex workers, against people who are drug users, where this is not treated enough like a public health problem.

And that, plus the poverty, plus the disprop­ortionately high percentage of people in our country, in the South, who live in rural areas and therefore have some of the same access problems that people in Africa and Southeast Asia and other places, have created a big problem for us.

-- President Bill Clinton addressing the closing plenary session of the 2012 Interna­tional AIDS Conference in Washing­ton, DC                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   ALL THE MONEY IN THE SOUTH FOR HIV AIDS SERVICES GOES INTO SOMEONES POCKETS, INSTEAD OF HELPING POOR IN SOUTHERN RURAL TOWNS ..I MOVED TO ATLANTA,GA AWAY FROM FAMILY BECAUSE I COULDN'T GET CARE FOR ME A 30 YR AIDS SURVIVOR & I WOULD LOVE TO LIVE CLOSER TO THEM BUT IF I DID I WOULD LOSE CRITICAL SERVICES A LONGTERM SURVIVOR NEEDS. MANY DOCTORS DISCRIMINATE IN THE NORTHERN, NORTHEASTERN, SOUTHEASTERN PARTS OF ALABAMA,MISSISSIPPI,LOUISIANA,TENNESSEE, AND MANY MORE AREAS.
