New Report: HIV/AIDS Data through December 2008: Provided for the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009, for Fiscal Year 2010

The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009 (formerly the Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency Act) was first enacted into law in 1990, and amended in 1996, 2000, 2006, and 2009. In FY2010, HRSA, for the fourth year in a row, used total counts of living cases of HIV and living cases of AIDS in the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Program Parts A and B (formerly Titles I and II) allocation formulae. Prior to FY2007, only AIDS cases, adjusted by a survival rate (estimated living AIDS cases), were used in the formulae. Beginning in FY2007, persons living with HIV (non-AIDS) as well as persons living with AIDS, as reported to and confirmed by the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), are used to calculate funding allocation amounts.
