HIVAIDS in Rural America

The recent CDC report, HIV Incidence: Estimated Annual Infections in the U.S., 2010-2016, estimates that the decrease in Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infections has plateaued because effective HIV prevention and treatment are not adequately reaching individuals with the highest need for these services; such as those in rural areas.  This hour-long webinar presented by the Rural Health Information Hub last month provides an overview of the “Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America” initiative, discusses the distribution of HRSA-funded Ryan White HIV/AIDS medical providers in rural areas of the U.S., and highlights the work of a current Ryan White recipient working in rural Alabama.
