Ryan White Program

The Ryan White Program was established in Hillsborough County to address the need for HIV/AIDS-related services among the economically disadvantaged and underserved residents of our community.

Hillsborough County awards funds to providers based on service priorities and allocations established by the West Central Florida Ryan White Care Council. Ryan White courageously fought AIDS-related discrimination and helped educate the nation about HIV/AIDS. Read more about Ryan White's life .


Who qualifies?

The program is for those who do not have sufficient health care coverage or financial resources for coping with HIV. The Ryan White Program fills gaps in care not covered by these other sources.

Initial eligibility and the level of benefits of the various programs are determined by income and existing health coverage. See eligibility requirements for the Ryan White Program.
