This site provides detailed State-level information on the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Modernization Act of 2009 (the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program) and the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program 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.
In calendar year 2011, an estimated 553,999 clients received at least one Ryan White-funded service.
These profiles include information on each State's population, the HIV/AIDS epidemic, Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program 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 HIV/AIDS Program Services Report (RSR) is the annual reporting instrument that agencies and organizations receiving funds complete in order to describe:
- organizational characteristics,
- provider characteristics,
- client characteristics, including:
- demographic information
- Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program-funded services
- clinical information.
Agencies and organizations that provide counseling and testing services report on the number of people receiving those services.
In order to provide context, population statistics and data on HIV/AIDS are also provided.
The 2011 State Profiles includes additional sections to provide an improved overall view of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program data, including clinical data, oral health programs, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) indicators and the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS).
Data totals in the U.S. Profile (excluding Overview data) includes totals for States, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands. Other U.S. Territories are not included. The Overview data excludes Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands.
