The Ryan White Program works with cities, states, and local community-based organizations to provide HIV-related services to more than half a million people each year. The program is for those who do not have sufficient health care coverage or financial resources for coping with HIV disease. Ryan White fills gaps in care not covered by these other sources. The Nebraska Ryan White Program receives federal funds to contract for service provision to HIV-positive consumers in Nebraska. Administration and monitoring is maintained at the state level, although no direct services are provided from the Nebraska Ryan White Program.
