Wisconsin Issues HIV/AIDS Nonprofit Directives For Corrective Action; Clients Protest Service Inadequacies
A group of people living with HIV/AIDS in Madison, Wis., demonstrated in front of the state Department of Health Services to protest what they claim to be inadequate services provided by the AIDS Network and lack of oversight from the state, WISCTV.com reports. State officials conducted a formal review of the nonprofit regarding how the AIDS Network dispersed and tracked services to its clients, and issued the nonprofit 38 directives for corrective action as a result. To date, nearly one-third of the directives have not been fully addressed, according to WISCTV.com. State officials said it will verify compliance on remaining issues in August. AIDS Network Director Karen Dotson said most of the organization's problems are due to issues related to a new computer system (WISCTV.com, 6/16).This is part of the KHN Morning Briefing, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
