HHS Secretary Tommy G. Thompson today announced 99 grants totaling nearly $10 million to help rural, underserved and minority communities plan for, increase care and services, and provide dental care for people living with HIV or at risk of infection.
"Many communities across America continue to experience extreme difficulties in providing high-quality health care services to their residents living with HIV/AIDS," Secretary Thompson said. "These grants will help those communities fill that need and ensure that more Americans are able to obtain care."
The awards are made under the Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency (CARE) Act, which is administered by HHS' Health Resources and Services Administration through its HIV/AIDS Bureau. The awards announced today include:
- 58 one-year planning grants totaling $2,873,663, which help communities plan activities that will lead to a comprehensive continuum of outpatient HIV primary care services;
- 29 capacity building grants totaling $3,965,343 to help organizations develop, enhance or expand high quality HIV/AIDS primary care services; and
- 12 community-based dental partnership grants totaling $2,956,588, which help train and educate students and residents enrolled in dental education programs who provide care for people with HIV under the direction of dentists in the community.
Typical Title III services include HIV counseling and testing, medical evaluation and outpatient clinical care. CARE Act programs help an estimated 530,000 poor and uninsured individuals with HIV/AIDS obtain primary health care, support services and life-sustaining medications each year. The new community-based dental partnership program is funded under Part F of the CARE Act.
Since the CARE Act was first funded in fiscal year 1991, nearly $10 billion has been awarded in grants to provide needed health care and associated services for people living with HIV/AIDS. Lists of the fiscal year 2002 Title III and community-based dental grant awards are below.
