Nearly half of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) clients are 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. Their viral suppression rates, across key populations, are slightly above the overall RWHAP rate, with the exception of those with unstable housing. Care for older people can be challenging if they are being treated for multiple conditions as they may need support to manage (and pay for) complicated treatment regimens.
