What is Ryan White Part D?

What is Ryan White Part D?

Ryan White Part D funds "programs that provide family-centered primary medical care to women, infants, children, and youth (WICY) living with HIV/AIDS when payments for such services are unavailable from other sources. Funding is intended to improve access to primary HIV medical care for HIV-infected women, infants, children, and youth through the provision of coordinated, comprehensive, culturally and linguistically competent services.

Part D grantees are expected to provide HIV primary care, specialty medical care, and support services to the clients they serve. HIV primary medical care refers to outpatient or ambulatory care, including behavioral health, nutrition, and oral health services. Family-centered care refers to services that address the health care needs of the persons living with HIV in order to achieve optimal health outcomes. Specialty care refers to specialty HIV care and specialty medical care such as obstetrics and gynecology, hepatology, and neurology." -from
