Adolescents & Youth

In 2019, youth and young adults aged 13–24 years represented 3.9 percent of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) clients. Twenty-one percent of new HIV cases in the U.S. are among young people ages 13-24 (CDC, 2020). Cases are overwhelmingly among gay/bisexual men, particularly African Americans. A significant proportion of youth who are HIV infected do not know it and are thus are not receiving care. In 2019, 79.4% of youth receiving RWHAP medical care achieved viral suppression, which is below the RWHAP national average of 88.1%.
