HOW HHS ANNOUNCES RYAN WHITE HIV/AIDS PROGRAM GRANTS! (479 hits)


For Immediate Release From HHS!

HHS Awards $2.27 Billion in Grants to Help Americans Access HIV/AIDS Care, Support Services, and Medication.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced today approximately $2.27 billion in Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program grants were awarded to cities, counties, states, and local community-based organizations in fiscal year (FY) 2019. This funding through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) supports a comprehensive system of HIV primary medical care, medication, and essential support services to more than half a million people with HIV in the United States.

“The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program has played a major role in the in the improved outcomes we see for Americans with HIV,” said HHS Secretary Alex Azar. “Thanks to expanded access to treatment and medical advances, HIV/AIDS has gone from being a likely death sentence to a condition that allows a nearly normal lifespan if properly treated. Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program clients, despite often very challenging circumstances, have a viral suppression rate that far exceeds the national average. The successes of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program are in part thanks to how the program cares for the needs of the whole person, including non-health factors. With President Trump’s new initiative to end the HIV epidemic in America by 2030, we will build on the successes of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program to connect Americans, especially in the communities most at risk, to the treatment and prevention services they need.”

"For nearly three decades, HRSA’s Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program has played a critical role in the United States' response to ending the HIV epidemic,” said HRSA Acting Administrator Tom Engels. "These grants will help ensure that Americans with HIV/AIDS have access to life-saving care and treatment needed to improve their health quality and medical outcomes."
