Supporting HIV care through education and innovation

Topic: Part B - States/Territories

Part B funds States and Territories to deliver HIV/AIDS care, including HIV/AIDS medications under the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP). Part B addresses care needs across many cities and rural regions. Decisions about what to fund are typically made by statewide planning groups or regional and local consortia. Services are then delivered directly by States/Territories and by nonprofit agencies. HRSA project officers and technical assistance/training services help Part B programs conduct planning; deliver care (with attention to quality, clinician training, and data reporting); and manage their grant funds. Learn more about Part B—formula and supplementary grants, ADAP, eligible services, and more.
