Trump Administration Awards $1 Million in Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Grants to Counties to Strengthen Efforts to End the HIV Epidemic in the United States

Today, the Trump Administration, through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), awarded approximately $1 million in Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program grants to 10 metropolitan areas that are Part A jurisdictions to provide technical assistance to enhance efforts to end the HIV epidemic. This funding through HRSA’s HIV/AIDS Bureau supports a comprehensive system of HIV primary medical care, medication, and essential support services to more than half a million people with HIV in the United States.

“Today, on National HIV Testing Day, we are proud to be taking initial steps to support the implementation of President Trump’s strategy to end the HIV epidemic in America by 2030,” said HHS Secretary Alex Azar. “The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program has a long track record of success in providing HIV treatment, and the President’s plan to end the HIV epidemic involves building on that success.”
