National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day celebrated on February 7

The Health Resources and Services Administration's (HRSA) Office of Regional Operations in Region 10 commemorated the 19th annual National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD) on February 7th, 2019. NBHAAD provides an opportunity to increase HIV education, testing, community involvement, and treatment among black communities.

HRSA's Ryan White HIV/AIDS Awareness Program (RWHAP), the largest Federal program exclusively providing HIV care and treatment to people living with HIV, funds grants to cities, counties, states, and local community-based organizations to provide a comprehensive system of HIV primary medical care, medication and essential support services to low income people living with HIV. More than half of people living with diagnosed HIV in the United States - more than 500,000 people - receive care through the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program each year.

HRSA's RWHAP serves a significant portion of black/African Americans living with HIV. In 2017, nearly three-quarters of the more than half a million clients served by the Program were from racial or ethnic minority populations, with more than 47 percent of clients identifying as black/African American. In 2017, among black/African American RWHAP clients receiving HIV medical care, 82.6 percent are virally suppressed, which is lower than the national RWHAP average of 85.9 percent.

Recently, the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program released its 2017 annual client-level data report, which highlights all clients served by the RWHAP during calendar years 2013 through 2017. The publication provides an in-depth look at demographics and socio-economic factors among clients served, such as age, race/ethnicity, transmission risk category, federal poverty level, health care coverage, and housing status. In addition, the report provides selected analyses to measure RWHAP's progress toward achieving HIV-related health outcomes.

About HRSA
