For 25 years, NASTAD’s National Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) Part B and AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) Monitoring Project Annual Report has documented key trends, challenges, and successes faced by public health programs ensuring access to life-saving treatment and services for people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) nationally.
The 2021-2022 edition of the Report includes longitudinal data spanning several domains of the RWHAP Part B program and ADAP widely considered essential to the federal Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) initiative and potentially impacted by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic.
In the 24th year of its history, this 2020 edition of the Annual Report marks the second featuring comprehensive, longitudinal data spanning several domains of the RWHAP Part B program and ADAP, including budget, expenditures, utilization, and client demographics.
The 2019 edition of the Annual Report marks the first featuring comprehensive, longitudinal data spanning several domains of the RWHAP Part B program and ADAP, including budget, expenditures, utilization, and client demographics. As well, this is the first time The Report is available in a digital-only format with downloadable PDF tables.
Building on the 22-year history of reporting on the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP), the National ADAP Monitoring Project, including the Annual Report, has evolved to include the program under which ADAP falls – the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) Part B program. The Annual Report has thus been renamed and reimagined. The 2018 National RWHAP Part B and ADAP Monitoring Project Annual Report (The Report) includes narrative and findings that span the totality of the RWHAP Part B program and reflect the reality that the achievements of ADAPs and other elements of the RWHAP Part B programs are inextricably linked.
Since the inception of ADAP, there have been significant shifts in funding and client need. ADAPs continually seek to identify how they can meet client need and ensure program sustainability. At a time when ADAPs are able to document program stability, it is imperative that ADAP look back on how challenges were resolved and look ahead at client needs and determine ways to prepare for the future. ADAPs are at an unprecedented juncture of being able to target resources for populations that need them most, to partner with Ryan White Part B programs to ensure that the whole client’s needs are met, and to identify ways to bolster treatment to improve individual’s health.
