Educate me
« on: January 25, 2008, 09:31:58 AM »
"HRSA’s AZT Drug Reimbursement Program laid the foundation for the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP), authorized under the CARE Act of 1990. ADAP was designed to pay for HIV treatments for low-income, underserved people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) and reflected HRSA’s effort to help the medical community offset the cost of treating PLWHA. Today, some 20 years later, ADAP is the largest initiative in the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program."

Question: What other initiatives are part of Ryan White?  :-[ For the longest I incorrectly assumed Ryan White and ADAP were the exact same thing but with different names, in other words I'm embarrassed to say I never made the distinction. So help me out please. Thanks.

Hi Alan,

It is easy to confuse ADAP and Ryan White as one and the same.  In reality, ADAP is only one component of Ryan White Care Act under Title II.  However, it comprises the biggest chunk of funding, and in some states, it practically is the only funding available.  There are other services available through the care act, some of which I'm sure you've heard of but did not realize was under the same funding.  Most of these are under the Title I component and are mainly available in large metropolitan areas with disproportionate share of HIV cases.  This could include out-patient care, dental, substance abuse treatment, mental health services, case management, transportation and housing assistance, nutrition services, day care, respite care and outreach.

This will explain it further:
