The 2006 reauthorization of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Modernization Act included a number of provisions and changes that have affected grantees and the provision of HIV care and treatment services. In 2007, HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) Division of Science and Policy (DSP) contracted with JSI to assess the implementation of the core medical services provision among nine Part A, B, and C grantees. In fall 2008, HAB contracted again with JSI to conduct an assessment of the impact of a number of additional changes in the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program legislation on care and treatment services. For this study, JSI conducted discussions with 27 Ryan White Program grantees, including nine Part A eligible metropolitan areas (EMAs) and transitional grant areas (TGAs), nine Part B states and territories, and nine Part D programs that serve women, infants, children, and youth.
