The Ambassador Toolkit

Resources for Promotion of the RWHAP Best Practices Compilation

The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) Best Practices Compilation gathers and disseminates approaches that have demonstrated improvements in health outcomes for people with HIV in both RWHAP-funded and other HIV service delivery settings.

The Compilation is a comprehensive, free, and searchable resource that collects, catalogs, and disseminates what works to improve HIV care and services to support replication by others.
