The Zombie Bill Is Back: ACA Repeal and Replace Bill Refuses To Die

It. Just. Won't. Die. After 2 conservative Republicans came out against the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) on Monday evening, it seemed for all the world like the Senate health care bill was on its last legs. However, after an impromptu lunch meeting at The White House consisting of equal parts carrot and stick, the Senate GOP has revived the BCRA and is trying once more to pass a bill that would uninsure at least 22 million people.

Syringe Services: A Critical Piece to Ending the HIV Epidemic

In April, I visited the Austin Harm Reduction Coalition (AHRC), a Syringe Access Fund grantee. Syringe exchange is currently illegal in Texas and AHRC’s dedicated team of staff and volunteers face the risk of legal action every day. They operate the exchange through a mobile unit, disposing of used syringes and providing new equipment and wound care. They also cooperate with another organization in-house to run an STI, HIV, and hepatitis C testing clinic once a week out of their office space. People who test positive are connected to care. AHRC’s work is vital to ending the HIV epidemic, especially given societal hurdles.
