Protect Medicaid Funding: Women Living with HIV, Issue 7 (Updated Feb. 2017)

Executive Summary

Cutting the funding of Medicaid whether through block grants or a per capita cap will result in yanking health care coverage from our most vulnerable. Medicaid covers almost half of all people getting regular HIV treatment, many of them women. Limiting the scope of Medicaid will leave many without access to life-saving treatment. This piece was updated in February 2017 with a personal story from Shyronn, a young mother of three living in Georgia. Because of Medicaid she has access to HIV treatment, which ensures her ability to enjoy her children and community.
