The Department of Health and Human Services on Tuesday announced 58 grants totaling more than $21.5 million through the federal Ryan White HIV/AIDS program. The grants, administered through the Health Resources and Services Administration, include $10.9 million for early intervention and primary care services for low-income people, $2.15 million to support HIV-positive people from the Caribbean living in the United States, $4.5 million for prevention efforts aimed at keeping HIV-positive people from transmitting the virus to others, and $4 million for outreach programs to identify and bring HIV-positive people into care.
"Many communities continue to struggle to meet the health care needs of their residents living with HIV/AIDS," said HRSA administrator Elizabeth Duke in a press release. "Today's grants will help extend HIV counseling and testing, medical evaluation, and outpatient clinical care to more of those who need these services."
