A significant proportion (over 40 percent) of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) clients are aged 50 years and older. As with the overall RWHAP population, the majority of older Ryan White clients are from racial and ethnic minority populations and have lower incomes. In contrast, their retention in care and viral suppression rates are better than the overall rates for Ryan White clients. Ryan White clients have better HIV health outcomes than those not receiving Ryan White services.
