From HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau - The Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) is pleased to release its inaugural Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) Oral Health Data Report, 2017.  

This publication reflects HRSA HAB’s ongoing commitment to ensuring the availability of timely program information. The report is the first publication of national data on RWHAP oral health programs. 

Included:

  • RWHAP Parts A–D oral health services
  • RWHAP Part F Dental Reimbursement Program
  • RWHAP Part F Community-Based Dental Partnership Program
  • RWHAP Part F AIDS Education and Training Center training events on oral health care

The publication provides a deeper look at service utilization, demographic, and socioeconomic factors among clients served across RWHAP oral health programs and the characteristics of RWHAP-funded organizations that deliver oral health services. The report also includes information about trainings delivered to oral health providers to treat people with HIV and providers trained.

The RWHAP works towards addressing unmet dental care needs through the provision of oral health services for low-income people with HIV through a variety of mechanisms with multiple access points. These mechanisms support both the direct provision of oral health services and the training of oral health providers in how to care for people with HIV, resulting in a comprehensive approach to oral health care for people with HIV.

We are happy to share this report with you. The report is not copyrighted and may be used and copied without permission.  Citation, however, is appreciated (in the report, please reference page ii for the citation).

Sincerely,
Laura Cheever, M.D., Sc.M.
Associate Administrator, HIV/AIDS Bureau, HRSA
