The U.S.
Department of Health and Human Services this week issued
$580 million Ryan White Title I grants to regions
throughout the country to help provide HIV care to the
nation’s low-income HIV-positive residents,
United Press International reports. The 51 grants include
both formula and supplemental funds; the formula
grants are issued based on the number of AIDS cases in
a region, with cities with high HIV caseloads competing
for the supplemental funds. Part of the funds issued by HHS
will support the Minority AIDS Initiative, which aims
to boost HIV prevention and care programs targeting
Americans of color who are disproportionately affected
by HIV. (The Advocate)
