Website Offers Access to HIV Meds for Some Uninsured Americans

By Enid Vzquez
From Test Positive Aware Network

September/October 2012
HarborPath website

HarborPath, a new non-profit organization, has been established to create a program that offers a single place where uninsured HIV-positive people who otherwise qualify for manufacturer-sponsored patient assistance programs (PAPs) can apply for and receive their medications. The "one stop shop" portal will provide a streamlined, online process to qualify individuals and deliver the donated medications through a mail-order pharmacy. HarborPath will pilot the program in states with high need, including Alabama, Texas, and Virginia.

To create the portal, HarborPath worked closely with the National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD) and the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), which provided the seed funding for the organization. On World AIDS Day 2011, President Bill Clinton noted the need to fight HIV/AIDS in the U.S.

"I am proud that my foundation is partnering with NASTAD and other pharmaceutical manufacturers to make sure Americans living with HIV have access to the life-saving medications they need," said President Clinton. "This is an important step forward in our fight against the disease."
