HELP Act Information and Resources
Rep. John Lewis introduced the HIV Epidemic Loan-Repayment Program (HELP) Act. The legislation helps address the urgent need to ensure a robust and well-qualified infectious diseases and HIV physician and clinical workforce that is even greater due to the pandemic. Initially introduced as H.R. 5806, the bill was re-introduced with a new bill number in the 116th Congress to include clinical pharmacists as eligible for the loan repayment program.
