Ryan White Program

The Ryan White Program is a federally funded program that provides medical and supportive services for people living with HIV/AIDS who are low income, uninsured or under insured, and have no other resources available to meet their medical needs.

The Memphis TGA Ryan White Program, administered by Shelby County Government, was first awarded Ryan White Part A and Minority AIDS Initiative funding through the U.S. Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA) in 2007. The program serves over 4,000 people living with HIV each year. In FY2016, the program received $6.8 million to provide HIV services. Services are available to eligible individuals living in Shelby, Fayette, Tipton Counties (TN); Desoto, Marshall, Tate, Tunica Counties (MS); and Crittenden County (AR).

The Ryan White Program Office is the unit for overseeing the legislative, programmatic, and fiscal compliance of these federal funds. Although the office does not provide direct services to clients, it is responsible for subcontracting funds to area clinics and community based organizations for service delivery. The Ryan White Program Office also ensures collaborative, comprehensive planning by key stakeholders, including people living with HIV/AIDS, in the design of a system of quality HIV care throughout the region.
