Ryan White Care Act
For 15 years, the Ryan White CARE Act has provided access to medical treatment and supportive services that have helped thousands of people sustain their health. The majority of funding from the Act supports medical care and treatment. However, funding has also been provided to support key supportive services: food, nutrition counseling, case management, and transportation, among others. With the reauthorization process underway, ANSA’s position is that the Act must continue to fund supportive services. Without these services, clients cannot successfully participate in medical care and adhere to treatment.
Funding for non-HIV/AIDS critically ill populations
Working with a team of legislative consultants, ANSA is working to secure federal appropriations for agencies whose missions have expanded to include providing nutrition services for critically ill, non-HIV/AIDS populations.
