The president’s advisory panel on AIDS angrily criticized this week the Clinton Administration’s inaction on what they call life-saving needle exchange programs.

In the most dramatic split to date between the 32-member panel and the White House, the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS called on Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Donna Shalala to certify needle exchange programs for federal funding.

Guest:

  • Bob Fogel, a member of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS. He is a litigation lawyer based in Chicago.
