ADDITIONAL INFO

RYAN WHITE PROGRAM - PRIMARY HEALTHCARE FOR HIV PATIENTS

The CDC estimates that one in five Men Having Sex with Men (MSM) will be diagnosed with HIV in their lifetime. In 2014, Fulton County had the fifth highest rates of new HIV infections with 15,597 residents living with HIV.  Atlanta area zip codes with the highest HIV rates are 30302, 30303, 30308, 30309, and 30310.

The Fulton County Ryan White Primary Healthcare program began in the late1980’s and is one of the earliest programs in the State of Georgia. The program is named for Ryan White, an Indiana teenager whose courageous struggle with HIV/AIDS and against AIDS-related discrimination helped educate the nation.   Ryan White contracted the virus through a blood transfusion.  He died in 1990, the same year that the U.S. Congress passed the HIV/AIDS bill that bears his name – the Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency (CARE) Act, which has since been named the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program.   The program provides a comprehensive array of services including primary care, oral health, behavioral health, and substance abuse and support services for those living with HIV/AIDS.  These services assist the client in achieving improved health outcomes and has increased access to care that ultimately impacts health disparities among indigent individuals.
