The Health Resources and Services Administration yesterday awarded cities, counties, states and community organizations $2.34 billion in fiscal year 2018 grants to support medical and support services, including medications, for people with HIV/AIDS. "The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program plays a vital role in the United States' public health response to ending the HIV epidemic,” said HRSA Administrator George Sigounas. “These grants will help ensure that the most vulnerable Americans living with HIV/AIDS have access to life-saving care and treatment needed to improve their health quality and medical outcomes."
