Poorest state in America & Hiv

 OR GOING TO HELL!
For people who currently have HIV, Mississippi has the highest death rate in the country: 32.9 per 1,000 individuals living with the disease.
For some Mississippians, the only thing worse than dying from HIV/AIDS is admitting they have it.
The Jackson metro area is one of the country’s worst offenders, claiming the fourth-highest rate of new HIV infections among metro areas in the U.S., and the third-highest rate for people newly diagnosed with AIDS in 2010.
For people who currently have HIV, Mississippi has the highest death rate in the country: 32.9 per 1,000 individuals living with the disease.
Fewer than half of Mississippians with HIV receive treatment regularly, the Health Department reports.

What is making it so bad that people live like 3rd world countries in Mississippi with HIV/AIDS?

We know the money is tight, but could they get funds from the government? 
Is President Obama afraid of Mississippians? Does he ever go there and if he doesn't WHY?

Why do the wealthy get above average treatment in America but the poor below average?
It pisses me off the Washington elite sit up becoming "FAT CATS" while low income just get more services cut from there budget. 

WE REALLY NEED TO BACK MISSISSIPPI UP ON HIV SERVICES,  BECAUSE EVERY LIFE IS IMPORTANT.  1 LIFE LOST OR SUFFERING WITH NO DIGNITY IS TOO MANY ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD!         STIGMA CAN KILL!!! IN MANY WAYS.....LETS GIVE BACK THE DIGNITY TO ANYONE SUFFERING WITH HIV IN MISSISSIPPI.                            TG. Green
