Tennesseans: Join the Fight Against HIV/AIDS!
To remember the millions of people worldwide who have been affected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic, PPMET is asking you to join us in communicating with Tennessee's Congressional representatives.
The Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency (CARE) Act provides funding to states to provide services to people living with HIV and AIDS. Despite the successes of the CARE Act, multiple years of flat funding for the CARE Act have stretched the program beyond its capacity to address the needs of those who come to CARE Act programs for services. The CARE Act must be reauthorized and adequately funded to ensure that all people living with HIV/AIDS will have a health services that meet their needs.
Join us in asking Congress to reuathorize the funding for the Ryan White CARE Act for 2006. You can send an email to your members of Congress simply by clicking on the link below.

Subject: Authorize the Ryan White CARE Act for 2006
Dear [decision maker name automatically inserted here],
In recognition of World AIDS Day on Thursday, December 1st, I urge you to reauthorize and adequately fund the Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency (CARE) Act for 2006. HIV/AIDS is a public health crisis in the United States. Over 40,000 people are newly infected in the United States every year. The services that the Ryan White CARE Act funds are vital to the health and lives of millions of our fellow citizens who are living every day with HIV/AIDS. I hope that you will remember the nearly 1 million Americans who are living with HIV/AIDS as you cast your vote for the reauthorization of the Ryan White CARE Act for 2006. Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response.
