Associations appeal to Italian govt to not cut AIDS funding


Rome, July 4 - AIDS and HIV researchers in Italy
signed an appeal on Thursday asking the Italian government to
not cut funding for advances in the treatment and prevention of
the disease and virus.
The letter addressed to Premier Enrico Letta and Health
Minister Beatrice Lorenzin was signed by over 100 project
managers for the national HIV and AIDS research program, various
scientific organizations, the Italian League for the Fight
against AIDS (LILA) and the Nadir foundation for patient
The associations said that more cuts in research funding
would take budgets down "to zero".
"Important scientific results, new treatments, training
for new researchers and infectious-disease physicians, as well
as the retention of researchers in the country" have all come
from efforts in Italy, the appeal said.
If Italy cuts the budget even further, the country risks
being left behind international developments that are entering a
new phase in terms of treatment and prevention in the fight
against AIDS and HIV," the associations said.
