Topic: Women

Women comprise one-fourth of estimated HIV diagnoses in the United States. Minority women, particularly African Americans, comprise the majority of cases. Many women living with HIV disease face socioeconomic and other barriers, like intimate partner violence and responsibility for child and family care. Women who receive care from the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) are far more likely to be retained in care and have viral suppression than those not receiving RWHAP services.
