(This amendment provides funding to create a targeted Crystal Methamphetamine and HIV Prevention Program to be located in rural areas of the Commonwealth where the abuse of the drug has been well documented. While the incidence of HIV infection in these areas is low, experiences in other parts of the country document the link between abuse of this drug and HIV-transmission due to behaviors that promote the spread of HIV when the virus is present. This initiative is designed to avoid an increase in HIV incidence in areas of the Commonwealth where Crystal Meth is a problem today.)
