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.

Central Florida HIV Planning Council
The Central Florida HIV Planning Council is a community planning group that makes recommendations to the Heart of Florida United Way on Ryan White Part B funds. Individuals from Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties convene to assess and prioritize the needs of the HIV/AIDS community in the East Central Florida region. It is also responsible for the planning of both prevention and patient care activities for the five county area.
The Central Florida HIV Planning Council is managed by Planning Council Support, which provides technical assistance and serves as program liaison between the Planning Council, community organizations, providers, and Ryan White Parts.
