In a sign of the changing nature of AIDS care as well as the financial problems of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, the organization is closing its oldest hospice. Opened in late 1988 in a former nurse's dorm of Barlow Respiratory Hospital in Elysian Park, the 25-bed Chris Brownlie House will close this week. "The demand for hospice beds has radically diminished," foundation President Michael Weinstein said, citing advances in drug treatment that are extending the lives of people with AIDS.

Re "State ignored HIV law, judge says," Dec. 5 We have worked hard to expand programs that serve people living with HIV/AIDS. The waiver authorized by AB 2197 would have allowed people who now receive their care from the AIDS Drug Assistance Program to supplement their care by obtaining coverage from Medi-Cal. This cost would be offset by savings from enrolling Medi-Cal eligible people with AIDS into HMOs. We have a disagreement with the AIDS Healthcare Foundation about the vigor with which we pursued federal approval for this effort and worked to encourage individuals with HIV to enroll in managed care.

County officials agreed Monday to pay a local AIDS foundation $600,000 that the group alleged was being withheld as political retribution. The AIDS Healthcare Foundation sued the county this year, alleging that the money was withheld because the organization had criticized the county's slow pace in securing federal AIDS funding. County officials confirmed Monday that they have settled the suit but denied that it was an admission of any wrongdoing against the foundation.

Much of the adult film industry was halted over the weekend after the third performer in a month tested positive for HIV. And on Monday, an advocacy group said a fourth performer had come forward as HIV-positive, although adult industry officials dismissed the report as a "rumor. " The Free Speech Coalition, an adult industry trade group, called a weeklong filming moratorium last month after actress Cameron Bay tested HIV-positive. A second performer, Rod Daily, who is romantically linked to Bay, announced his status on Twitter and to the Daily News shortly after filming resumed - but that case was not officially reported to the industry group and did not result in a new moratorium.

The largest AIDS clinic in the San Fernando Valley is closing, its officials said Thursday, in part because it's caught in an ironic trap: New drug therapies that offer the best hope yet of beating the disease are too expensive for its budget. The AIDS Healthcare Foundation's clinic in Van Nuys will cease operations in September, said foundation president Michael Weinstein, sending its nearly 500 uninsured or Medi-Cal patients to seek care elsewhere.

Regarding "A Howl of Anger" (Nov. 27): There are those in the AIDS arena who agree with many of Elinor Burkett's concerns and conclusions. It's no wonder she doesn't know of us. The pressure from "AIDS Inc." to silence us is shocking. We are "rebels" who see that the rate of new infection and other data mean that the status quo in education, prevention and testing is not working. For our efforts to deal with an epidemic that has far different ramifications as it moves steadily into the heterosexual world, we have been attacked by a number of "AIDS Inc."
