Black/African American

Nearly half of those getting care from HRSA’s Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) are black/African American. Viral suppression rates are comparable to the overall RWHAP client population, but disparities remain. HIV care programs and technical assistance and training focus on overcoming such challenges as limited access to health services, stigma due to sexual orientation, and housing.
