Ohio: Ryan White Program Changes Mean More Can Obtain HIV Drugs
October 4, 2011
Ohio's Ryan White Program took the last person needing AIDS drug assistance off its waiting list on Sept. 28.
At the list's peak in July, 492 Ohioans were deferred, but several measures allowed the state to accommodate these patients, said Katherine E. Shumate, the Ryan White Part B administrator. Today the program has 5,623 enrolled clients.
