About the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program
The Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program provides a comprehensive system of HIV primary medical care, essential support services, and medications for low-income people with HIV. The program funds grants to states, cities, counties, and local community-based organizations to provide care, treatment, and support services for people with HIV to improve health outcomes and reduce HIV transmission. HRSA’s HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) administers the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) and is committed to achieving optimal HIV health outcomes for all RWHAP clients. To achieve this goal, a central strategy of HRSA HAB is to advance RWHAP data dissemination and utilization of data for program monitoring and quality improvement.
