Needs Assessment

Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program needs assessment is a process of collecting information about the needs of people with HIV (PWH)—both those receiving care and those not in care. Steps involve gathering data—from multiple sources—on the number of HIV and AIDS cases, the needs of PWH, and current resources (Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program and other) available to meet those needs. This information is then analyzed to identify what services are needed and by which groups of PWH.
