Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program: COVID-19

We know that many of our Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program recipients, subrecipients, and stakeholders are concerned about what you should be doing to prepare for a possible increase in the number of U.S. cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19).


HRSA’s Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program recipients provide a comprehensive system of HIV primary medical care, medication, and essential support services to the most vulnerable people with HIV, and many are well positioned to play an important role in delivering critical services and assisting local communities during an emergency. We encourage Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program recipients to be proactive in their emergency preparedness planning and to coordinate with existing partners at the state and local level in the development of preparedness and response plans, while also taking into consideration the need to maintain their ongoing capacity to provide access to HIV care and treatment services to low-income people with HIV.
