Background and Discussion:
Ryan White Part A is a federal program administered through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). The grant serves individuals living with HIV who have no health insurance (public or private), have insufficient health care coverage, or lack financial resources to get the care they need for their HIV disease. In addition to outpatient medical care, Ryan White also funds services that support access or retention to medical care.




Expected Impact:
To provide optimal HIV care and treatment for people with HIV who are low-income, uninsured, and underserved, to improve their medical outcomes.




Alternative Options:
There is no alternative to not approving accepting carryover award. Primary medical care and support services to People Living with HIV would be interrupted.
