Guam - The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Health Resources and Services Administration has awarded $286,530 to the Guam Department of Public Health. The funds will be used to implement the Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency Care Act for Guam, which improves access to primary health care and support services for people living with HIV.

Along with being utilized for early intervention, the funds will also be used for medications to treat HIV, HIV care support groups, government or contractual services, health insurance coverage, and home- and community-based services.

Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo says, "The Ryan White Care Act is a comprehensive approach towards medical care, treatment, and support services for individuals living with HIV/AIDS who have no other means with which to obtain such care.  I commend Guam Department of Public Health and Social Services Director J. Peter Roberto for his continuous efforts in improving the quality of health services on Guam."
