Most representatives of French departments (dpts) refuse or are not able to grant an urgent help fund (FAR) against AIDS precarity in France and in Africa : detail, discussion and proposals.
The FAR is an urgent help fund created by Positifs association for the seropositive persons in social precarity. As more and more people living in France and in Africa contact us, we have decided to also request the representatives in all French departments and regions : Departmental Direction of Sanitary and Social Affairs / DDASS (dd), General Council (cg), Regional Council (cr), Economic and Social Council (ce). Therefore, on 19.03 and on 26.05.1999, we sent a 5 pages letter to these representatives (n=250 : 99/dd, 99/cg, 26/cr, 26/ce) with a request for subsidies (50,000FF for each) for the FAR.
We have received 100 replies (dd=26/99, cg=53/99, cr=13/26, ce=8/26) [We have received the last response on 02 May 2000 that is to say almost one year after we have sent our initial letter]. Among them, 22* (19/cg, 3/dd) asked us first of all to fill up a supplementary file. Finally, none of them agreed to feed the FAR. Advanced reasons :
Implication of dd, cg, cr and ce against AIDS precarity is inapropriate and insufficient. Moreover, certains arguments are doubtful (particularly the withdrawal in their own department) and even conflicting between each dd, cg and cr. However the full details of results must be consulted to discuss them in depth (published on our Internet web site where 1 millions of connexions have been reached). Our proposal : each department could feed the FAR at a level taking into account the similar projects already granted and with a percentage (50% ?) intented to people living with AIDS in their department.
