Today on World AIDS Day, the Ryan White Medical Providers Coalition commends President Barack Obama, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, and Jeff Crowley, Director of the Office of National AIDS Policy, for committing an additional $50 million to expand access to HIV/AIDS medication and treatment.
Now is a critical moment in the fight to end the HIV pandemic. Scientific research findings unequivocally show that early access to treatment improves health outcomes for people with HIV and significantly reduces HIV transmission. The first-ever National HIV/AIDS Strategy provides a roadmap for reducing HIV infections, increasing access to care, and addressing health disparities. Today’s commitment of $35 million to the Ryan White AIDS Drug Assistance Program and $15 million to the Ryan White Part C Program to provide HIV/AIDS medication and treatment both will save lives and help meet the strategy’s important goals.
