Ryan White Part D serves women, infants, children, youth, and families affected by HIV. The US 2016 fiscal year budget has eliminated the Part D program, consolidating it with Part C as of OCTOBER 1, 2015 - across innumerable people at risk.
We are Save Ryan White Part D, a volunteer group of advocates, with supporters all over the world. And we need your help to let Congress and HRSA know that this program saves lives and needs continued support!
In less than one month (beginning May 15th), the US House of Representatives can start hearing reports about annual appropriations bills--including the HRSA budget that contains the changes to Part D. And before June ends, a finalized budget will be passed. The time to #SaveRyanWhitePartD is growing short and we are entering crisis mode.
As such, we are excited to launch a new #SaveRyanWhitePartD campaign that we mentioned earlier, SOS. SOS is a three prong approach; as such, we will be describing each part in three different posts. There are many, many ways that you can help; feel free to contact us to learn more about how you and/or your community can get involved!
