About Us

The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Modernization Act (formerly called the Ryan White CARE Act) was passed by Congress in 1990 with the purpose of improving the quality of life for those affected by HIV/AIDS. It was re-authorized in 1996, 2000, 2006, and 2009.
The act was named after Ryan White, a teenager from Indiana who brought awareness of the epidemic through his struggle with HIV/AIDS and AIDS-related discrimination. In 1994, the Department of Public Health of San Bernardino County began receiving Ryan White Program Part A funding to support programs in the Transitional Grant Area (TGA) of San Bernardino County and Riverside County. The Ryan White Program office also administers Part B funding that is received from the California Office of AIDS for services in San Bernardino County. As of March 1, 2016, the Ryan White Program funds HIV service programs internally in the San Bernardino Department of Public Health as well as services provided by various public and community-based organizations throughout the two-county area to those who lack health insurance and financial resources to obtain the care and support services they need.

Our Mission

To improve the access, quality, and delivery of Ryan White Part A and B funded services to low income HIV positive individuals in the two-county area (Riverside and San Bernardino).
