About Ryan White

Ryan White and his motherRyan and his Mom helped educate the Nation about HIV/AIDS. Who Was Ryan White?

At the age of 18, Ryan White died on April 8, 1990, just months before Congress passed the AIDS bill that bears his name – The Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency (CARE) Act of 1990 (Public Law 101-381). MORE INFO  

The Nebraska Ryan White Program also offers HIV Case Management. Eligibility for services is 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. To receive services, clients must be enrolled through case management, with proof of HIV status, proof of income, and other federally required documentation. Case management services must be accessed through the Nebraska AIDS Project, Inc (NAP). NAP can be reached at 800/782-2437 or 402/552-9260.

The future of HIV treatment is wide open. New medications continue to be developed and approved by the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) on an annual basis. Advances in therapeutics enable individuals with HIV to take fewer pills with fewer side effects. It is hoped that advances such as these will eventually bring the cost of providing these medications to manageable levels with the end goal of improving the health and well-being of individuals with HIV in Nebraska.
