The Virginia Department of Health (VDH), Division of Disease Prevention has administered Ryan White Part B funding for HIV care services to persons living with HIV/AIDS in Virginia since 1991.  A major part of Part B funding is the Virginia Medication Assistance Program (VA MAP) that provides medications for low-income, uninsured individuals with HIV/AIDS.  The remaining funds provide HIV care services, targeted to deliver medical care and support services to eligible individuals living with HIV/AIDS.  Ryan White funding is the payer of last resort.

Emergency Preparedness/COVID-19 Information

The Virginia Ryan White HIV/AIDS Part B (RWHAP B) program asks all of its partners and consumers to be prepared ahead of any emergency situation that may impact and affect the Commonwealth.  To assure adequate medication supplies, we ask all providers and consumers to assess medication refill needs before the emergency situation is affecting Virginia.  If consumers access medications at local health departments, mail order, or retail pharmacies, encourage and help them have peace of mind and get refills now.  People Living with HIV (PLWH) may be displaced within Virginia if a region is impacted (such as the eastern and central regions), as well as from out-of-state if they evacuate to Virginia. To help everyone be prepared, VDH has created new tabs on the Ryan White program sites for “Emergency Preparedness/COVID-19”.  You will find information, policies, procedures, and forms to help PLWH who need emergency services during this event.  If you need to provide emergency services during or after the emergency situation, the information you need is in a convenient location on this page and the VA MAP (formerly ADAP) web page.  VDH encourages you to always stay safe and please reach out to the RWHAP B team if you have any questions or need additional information.
