Ryan White Part A Case Management
The HIV/AIDS Services program brings hope to individuals living with HIV/AIDS. Through case management programs such as Ryan White, individuals living in Region II receive care coordination, medication, housing, utility, food, dental and transportation assistance.

The Peer Advocates meet with clients to foster a relationship and help the clients cope with their diagnosis. Clients are linked to medical care and medical case management. The Advocates provide the clients with information on living with HIV disease, discuss the benefits of entering and remaining in care, provide guidance on how to navigate the system of care and how to obtain needed services.
