Minority AIDS Initiative (MAI) Program

Ryan White Part A/MAI funds are focused on reducing HIV-related health disparities and improving health outcomes for the HIV+ African-American and Hispanic communities.

The main goals of the MAI Program are to improve HIV-related health outcomes and to reduce HIV-related disparities and disease among racial and ethnic minority communities disproportionately affected by HIV/AIDS.  The MAI Program conducts outreach, health education/risk reduction, and HIV treatment adherence education, and works in the community with providers to incease access to culturally and linguistically competent services for PLWH/A in the TGA.  The two critical arms of the MAI Program are the MAI Community Liaison and the Health Education/Risk Reduction (HE/RR) Coordinator.

 

The Ryan White HIV Services Program offers three levels or tiers of coverage.  Ryan White funds are defined by law as funds of “last resort”—any available funding sources (such as insurance) for a specific service must be exhausted before Ryan White funds can be utilized.
