In an effort to reduce the 21-week waiting period that AIDS patients now face when seeking help at outpatient county medical facilities, the Los Angeles County Commission on AIDS on Friday recommended the immediate expenditure of $500,000 that had been set aside to staff a clinic next spring. "A 21-week waiting period is a huge crisis . . . it is unconscionable," said AIDS commission chairman Rand Schrader, a Los Angeles Municipal Court judge.

A 17-member Los Angeles County Commission on AIDS has been created to advise the Board of Supervisors on ways to combat the epidemic locally. The board voted unanimously Tuesday to create the new panel to replace the 3-year-old informal task force formed by Supervisor Ed Edelman and Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley. The new commission will be made up of activists in the fight against acquired immune deficiency syndrome and county officials. The members are expected to be named within two weeks.

Prodded by complaints from the Los Angeles County Commission on AIDS, the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday called for an investigation into why the Department of Health Services has failed to spend about $1.5 million that had been earmarked to help dying AIDS patients. The money, approved by the board last July, is designed to provide home and hospice care for AIDS victims as part of a program of alternative health care for those suffering from the acquired immune deficiency syndrome.

The Los Angeles County Commission on AIDS approved a proposed ordinance Friday that would bar public and private employers, landlords, schools and businesses from discriminating against sufferers of AIDS and those merely suspected of having the disease. The sweeping anti-discrimination measure, if adopted by the Board of Supervisors, would make it illegal to exclude from jobs and promotions AIDS victims, people with the AIDS virus and those an employer suspects might be infected.

The county Commission on AIDS admonished Los Angeles County health officials Friday for failing to move quickly on home and hospice care for dying AIDS patients and proposed a March 1 deadline to begin spending $1.5 million in untapped funds. Supervisor Mike Antonovich, whose appointee to the commission urged the fast-track approach, said later in the day that he will champion the proposal when it comes before the Board of Supervisors.

We of the Los Angeles County Commission on AIDS commend Magic Johnson for his candor and openness. He has given the war on AIDS a spokesperson and leader with the ability to pass the message to communities that have been very difficult to reach in the past. Johnson has taken his health news and performed the most impressive rebound of his career. This has brought the AIDS message into the homes and hearts of millions. He has truly transcended from a Lakers team member and world-class athlete to a world-class coach of life and humanity.
