Serving HIV/AIDS patients throughout Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties, the Ryan White Program helps improve the quality of life for thousands of people each year.
Heart of Florida United Way annually receives almost $4 million in federal and state funds from the Florida Department of Health and Orange County Government to provide patient care services across the five counties. Care is coordinated through a network of seven AIDS service organizations (ASOs) and more than 200 service providers.
Program dollars are targeted for underserved groups, such as people who may be uninsured/underinsured or unable to pay for sometimes costly HIV/AIDS treatments. Through coordination of effort among ASOs, the Florida Department of Health and other Ryan White Program recipients, consumers of these services are offered a care system with a holistic approach to treating HIV/AIDS.
