This site provides detailed State-level information on the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Modernization Act of 2006 (the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program) and the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program reaches more than 529,000 people a year. It funds primary care and support services for people living with and affected by HIV disease who lack health insurance and financial resources for their care. The program also funds training, technical assistance, and demonstration projects to advance the work of funded agencies.
Authorizing legislation for this program was passed in 1990, reauthorized in 1996, 2000, and 2006. The FY 2008 appropriation was $2.07 billion.
These profiles include information on funding, services provided, and people served.
Every year, recipients of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program funds are required to report to the Health Resources and Services Administration's HIV/AIDS Bureau (HRSA/HAB) how those funds have been used to provide services to low-income and underserved individuals and families living with HIV/ AIDS. The Ryan White Program Data Report (RDR) is the annual reporting instrument that agencies and organizations receiving funds complete in order to describe:
- organizational characteristics,
- the number and characteristics of clients they served,
- the types of services provided, and
- the number of clients receiving these services and the number of client visits by type of service.
Agencies and organizations that provide counseling and testing services report on the number of people receiving those services. In addition, providers of ambulatory and outpatient medical care provide some information on the outcomes of their services.
In order to provide context, population statistics and data on the HIV/AIDS are also provided.
