Ryan White Program
First created in 1990, the Ryan White Program (RWP) is the largest source of federal funding exclusively dedicated to HIV-related treatment, care, training, and support services. The program funds states, cities, clinics, and nonprofit HIV service organizations to provide HIV care and treatment, as well as the essential support services that increase linkage and retention in care. In jurisdictions where the Ryan White Program has worked hand-in-hand with health reform, the program has proven to play a critical role in not only supporting greater engagement in care for those already infected, but also in reducing new infections.
AIDS United is committed to maintaining a strong Ryan White Program that works synergistically with the health reform. Read the Ryan White Program brief.
