    Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE)


    The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Modernization Act is the nation's largest primary funder for HIV/AIDS health and social services including primary medical care, medication assistance, health insurance assistance, mental health counseling, substance use treatment, dental care, case management, and other HIV-related medical and support services. The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program's funding and administration are managed by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), which is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) manages Ryan White Part B funding and the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) within Kansas.

    The purpose of these funds is to provide care for persons living with HIV infection who are not covered by public or private sources. These resources assure that all Kansans living with HIV infection throughout the state have access to the resources needed to monitor and treat infection, in order to achieve the highest quality of life possible.

    Funds awarded by the Ryan White Program are only authorized to be used for the provision of services and activities allowed under the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Modernization Act and identified as allowable in Federal policy notices from HRSA.
