Services for Persons Living with HIV/AIDS (Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program)
Managing Agency Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA)

Program Description

The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program is a Federal program that provides HIV-related health services. The program works with cities, states, and local community-based organizations to provide services to more than half a million people each year.

The program is for those who do not have sufficient health care coverage or financial resources for coping with HIV disease. Ryan White fills gaps in care not covered by these other sources. The majority of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program funds support primary medical care and essential support services. A smaller but equally critical portion is used to fund technical assistance, clinical training, and research on innovative models of care.
