Rise in Central Ohio's AIDS Count Triggers Federal Aid

June 25, 2013

Central Ohio will be receiving federal government funding because the number of people with AIDS in the area exceeded 1,000 for five years in a row. Columbus Public Health is working to link the uninsured and underinsured with medical services using $4 million from the federal government's Ryan White Part A program. The program allows communities to fit services to their needs and is focused on getting HIV-infected individuals into treatment and adhering to their treatment plan. Approximately 1,000 residents of Franklin County, Morrow County, and adjacent counties will be served each year, according to Audrey Regan, director of sexual health promotion at Columbus Public Health. Services provided include outpatient care by area doctors, behavioral-health services, case management, transportation, and short-term housing.
