Women

In 2020, 25.9% of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) clients were female. Women comprised 19% of new HIV diagnoses in the United States in 2019. Minority women, particularly African Americans, are the most heavily impacted. Many women living with HIV disease face socioeconomic and other barriers, like intimate partner violence and responsibility for child and family care. Women who receive care from the RWHAP are far more likely to be retained in care and have viral suppression than those not receiving RWHAP services.
