WHY SO LITTLE #HIV FUNDS IN RURAL @ALABAMA?

The 10 states wher HIV is most prevalent — New York, Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Florida,
 California, Louisiana, Georgia, South Carolina, and Alabama — are mostly located in the northeastern and southern regions of the country. Although the first HIV cases were mostly in large urban areas, today nearly every area in the United States is affected.
 
But out of all the hardest hit states in the South, Alabama is by far the worst to provide testing and prevention services. ‪#‎HIV
 
NO HELP IN @ALABAMA FOR RURAL ‪#‎HIV‬ RESIDENTS! Despite being home to the University of Alabama at Birmingham, one of the best teaching hospitals in the country, Alabama only has 11 organizations receiving funds for HIV/AIDS medical care, and of those 11, just five are located in rural areas, which comprises the majority of the state. WERE DOES THE FUNDING GO?
 
ASK WHO HANDLES FUNDING IN ALABAMA..WHY? IS THERE SO LITTLE FUNDING IN RURAL AREAS IN ALABAMA?
