AHF Mourns Passing of Bill Rosendahl: ‘A Prince of a Man Who Gave Voice to the Voiceless’

Former Los Angeles City Council Member and longtime Adelphia Cable Television host was a longstanding and ardent supporter of AIDS Healthcare Foundation and for the causes of people living with HIV/AIDS

LOS ANGELES--()--AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) today mourned the death of Bill Rosendahl, a longtime Los Angeles City Council Member (District 11, 2005–2013) and former Adelphia Cable Television executive and talk show host, who passed away earlier today after a valiant four-year battle with cancer. AHF President Michael Weinstein, an oftentimes collaborator and close friend of Rosendahl, issued the following statement on his passing:

“Bill Rosendahl was a prince of a man who gave voice to the voiceless. He was a longstanding, and one of the strongest supporters of AHF and for the causes of people living with HIV and AIDS. Long before it was fashionable, Bill used the platform of his cable television news show to educate and inform the public about important, often unheralded causes that were near to his heart: the fight against HIV/AIDS, LGBT issues, the homeless and other disenfranchised communities. He will be profoundly missed.”

AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), the largest global AIDS organization, currently provides medical care and/or services to over 605,000 individuals in 36 countries worldwide in the U.S., Africa, Latin America/Caribbean, the Asia/Pacific Region and Eastern Europe.
