By 1996, ~1 million people had died of AIDS. When the lifesaving “AIDS cocktail” was introduced that year, most couldn’t afford it.
#AHF President Michael Weinstein refused to stand by and watch our hospice patients die. AHF paid for the miracle drug & gave it to patients for free, almost going bankrupt but saving 100s of lives. We still provide cutting-edge care regardless of ability to pay, bc health is a human right.
