HHS allots more than $2B to expand access to HIV treatment

HHS will award nearly $2.3 billion in Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program grants to cities, states and local organizations.

The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program provides primary medical care, drug assistance, education and training, in addition to a multitude of other essential services for those battling HIV/AIDS. The program extends care to more than 50 percent of people diagnosed with HIV in the United States.

"The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program plays an instrumental role in the United States' public health response to HIV," said HHS Secretary Sylvia Burwell. "These grants will ensure that Americans living with HIV/AIDS will have lifesaving access to the care and treatment needed for optimal health outcomes."
