Treatment Briefs: Consensus Statement to Save CPCRA Sites

A coalition of organizations, including GMHC, is circulating a consensus statement calling for refunding of the four sites in the Community Programs for Clinical Research on AIDS (CPCRA) that were recently de-funded (see Treatment Issues, October 1994, page 12). Three of the four defunded sites were in New York City. The three New York CPCRA sites had enrolled 67 percent of all Latinos, 59 percent of all injection drug users, 54 percent of all women and 42 percent of all African- Americans in the CPCRA nationally. Additionally, without these three sites it is difficult to imagine how the CPCRA plans to initiate its new tuberculosis trials. To sign onto this consensus statement, call or fax your organization's name, city, state and contact phone number to: Linda Podhurst, Ph.D., Clinical Directors Network, 212/255-3841 (telephone) or 212/255-4840 (fax).
