The Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) today released the first report on national Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program AIDS Drug Assistance Program client-level data.
The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) Annual Client-Level Data Report, 2017 [PDF, 660KB] is the inaugural publication of data submitted through the ADAP Data Report (ADR) system. The data describe the demographic characteristics of clients accessing ADAP services and the ADAP-funded services used. Data are included for 2014 through 2017, nationally and by state/territory.
This report reflects HRSA HAB’s ongoing commitment to ensuring the availability of timely program information. It provides a deeper look at service utilization, demographic, and socioeconomic factors among clients served by RWHAP ADAP. The report also includes client-level data based on age, race/ethnicity, federal poverty level, and health care coverage.
Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program ADAP provides essential medication to low-income people with HIV who have limited or no health care coverage. ADAP is critical to ensuring that people with HIV are able to adhere to medication regimens and remain virally suppressed. People with HIV who achieve and maintain an undetectable viral load have effectively no risk of sexually transmitting the virus to an HIV-negative partner. The medication and health care coverage assistance offered by ADAP is crucial for attaining optimal HIV health outcomes among people with HIV, for preventing further transmission of the virus and, ultimately, for ending the HIV epidemic.
