Ryan White Reauthorization Campaign Needs You!

October 2005

  • Few people know how destructive the AIDS epidemic still is in America.
  • Few people know the Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency Act helps HIV/AIDS patients get medical care they could not otherwise afford.
  • Even fewer people know the Ryan White CARE Act will expire September 30th.
  • The American Academy of HIV Medicine and its Reauthorization Campaign partners* are conducting a campaign to raise awareness that:
    • HIV/AIDS is still a major problem in this country, especially for patients who can’t afford medical care.
    • The Ryan White CARE Act is still sorely needed. It must not only continue, but must also be strengthened.
    • Everyone has a stake in getting the legislation reauthorized in Congress.
