Online training platform providing U.S. health care staff with evidence-based core competency training on HIV prevention, screening, diagnosis, and care.
In 2018, 26.5% of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) clients were female. Women comprised 19% of new HIV diagnoses in the United States in 2018. 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. See the HRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau Fact Sheet, Female Clients: Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, 2018 (January 2020).
