Ending the epidemic by reducing new HIV infections

HRSA has awarded grants for multiple components of the Ending the HIV Epidemic Initiative, including funds to enhance Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) HIV care engagement in jurisdictions that comprise over 50% of new HIV diagnoses; funds to support the work of the funded RWHAP agencies; and awards to HRSA Health Centers for HIV prevention including testing and prescribing of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP).

As described in the HRSA summary of RWHAP awards:

  • $55 million was awarded to RWHAP recipients in 39 metropolitan areas (Part A) and eight states (Part B) "to link people with HIV who are either newly diagnosed, or are diagnosed but currently not in care, to essential HIV care and treatment and support services."
  • $2.8 million in awards went to 11 RWHAP regional and national AIDS Education and Training Centers to provide workforce training and technical assistance.
  • $5 million was awarded to two national organizations to support the work of the above Part A and B jurisdictions, including technical assistance and coordination of work across sites. 

Over $53 million went to 195 HRSA Health Centers in 26 states and the District of Columbia for prevention and PrEP services.
