Online clinician training platform with evidence-based core competency training on HIV prevention, screening, diagnosis, care, and key populations.
In 2018, 46.1% of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) clients were aged 50 years and older. As with the overall RWHAP population, the majority of older Ryan White clients are from racial and ethnic minority populations and have lower incomes. In contrast, their retention in care and viral suppression rates are better than the overall rates for Ryan White clients. Care for older people can be challenging if they are being treated for multiple conditions. Older persons with HIV may need support to manage (and pay for) complicated treatment regimens.
