The Time Has Come to Centralize HIV Services in West Virginia


My name is Marcus J. Hopkins, and I have been living with HIV since 2005. While I’m not considered a “long-term survivor” of HIV—a term deservedly ascribed to People Living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) since the 1980s or 1990s—my experiences receiving treatment for HIV through the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) and AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) have run an interesting gamut across five states: Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, California, and West Virginia. Across those five states, I have experienced a wide variety of HIV services provision over the course of being in HIV treatment since 2007, and can truly attest to the adage, “When you’ve seen one ADAP, you’ve seen one ADAP.”
