On December 1, HRSA joins the world in observing World AIDS Day to show our support and commitment to those who are living with the disease and to remember those who have died from HIV/AIDS.

On World AIDS Day 2011, President Obama announced $50 million to increase the number of people living with HIV who are linked to and retained in HIV care and treatment. Of that $50 million, $15 million was directed to the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part C program, which became known as the Increasing Access to HIV Care and Treatment (IAHCT) initiative. As part of the $15 million, in FY 2012, HRSA’s Bureau of Primary Health Care and HIV/AIDS Bureau worked in collaboration to award over $10 million to 275 Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part C – Early Intervention Services grantees, of which nearly half are dually-funded by the Health Center Program, to implement five key activities.In addition, as part of the $15 million IAHCT funding, 14 new entities were competitively awarded $4.6 million to provide HIV primary care and early intervention services.The effort’s initial goal was to allow services to an additional 7,500 patients across the country, and first-year program results more than doubled the initial expectations.
