Pennsylvania Ryan White Part C and D Coordination Project
A Project of the MidAtlantic AIDS Education and Training Center

Description

The purpose of the Pennsylvania Ryan White Part C and D Coordination Project is to provide a forum for peer support and facilitated discussions for addressing emerging issues and problem solving among the 25 Ryan White Part C and D programs across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Prior to 2014, there was no organized forum for coordination and collaboration for these important clinical programs serving persons living with HIV and their families. Since all programmatic components of the Ryan White are required by HRSA, Bureau of HIV/AIDS to participate in the Pennsylvania Statewide HIV planning process, the MidAtlantic AETC was approached by several Part C providers who requested assistance and support to convene an ongoing forum for Part C and D providers.

For more information, please contact the MidAtlantic AETC.
