The Health Resources and Services Administration this week awarded cities, states and community-based organizations $2.36 billion in fiscal year 2017 grants to support medical and support services, including medications, for people with HIV/AIDS. "The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program plays a critical role in the United States' public health response to HIV,” said HRSA Administrator George Sigounas. "These grants will ensure that the most vulnerable Americans living with HIV/AIDS will have access to the necessary care and treatment needed to improve their health quality and medical outcomes."
