WASHINGTON D.C. (BRPROUD) — The Louisiana Department of Health will be granted $6.5 million in Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program grants by the Department of Health and Human Services, according to Senator Bill Cassidy.

“As a doctor, I treated uninsured HIV patients and saw the pain this disease can cause,” said Cassidy. “This money is a great investment in making Louisiana healthier and lowering the rate of HIV.”

The program provides HIV primary medical care, essential support services, and medications to improve health outcomes and reduce HIV transmission among hard-to-reach populations.
