The Department of Health and Human Services last week announced $3.8 million in grants to help provide outpatient and primary care services for low-income people living with HIV/AIDS or at increased risk of contracting HIV. The 12 grants, awarded under the Ryan White Act, will go to community-based clinics, hospitals, public health departments, and universities in nine states. The grants will help fund testing and referral services, medical evaluations and clinical care, oral health care, drug adherence and nutritional counseling, outpatient mental health services, and outpatient substance abuse treatment. Health Resources and Services Administration administrator Elizabeth Duke said the grant recipients all "have a track record of providing outstanding services to people living with HIV/AIDS who need it most."
