People with HIV and Community

The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) is a federal program that funds care for people with HIV who have low incomes. Funds go to states and communities to deliver services. The program also requires a key role for people with HIV (often called consumers). This website has tools to help that happen. Examples include: involvement in planning, serving on clinic advisory boards, and being employed as peer educators to support others to help keep them in care.
