WASHINGTON (AP) D.C.'s mayor and city health officials are holding a meeting to discuss past mismanagement of the city's HIV/AIDS office and discuss reforms.
Monday's meeting comes after The Washington Post began a series of stories Sunday on the mismanagement of Department of Health money going to D.C. HIV/AIDS groups. The paper reported that between 2004 and 2008, the department awarded more than $25 million to nonprofit agencies that had questionable spending or provided substandard care.
According to a report released by D.C. health officials earlier this year, at least three percent of residents in the nation's capital are living with HIV or AIDS.
