The federal Health and Human Services agency is sending Iowa one-point nine million dollars to help care for needy patients living with H-I-V and AIDS. Pat Young is HIV-AIDS Program Manager in the state department of public health.The state has a centralized drug program for clients who qualify, and offers health and support services. Young says “support” for an HIV or AIDS patient might mean help getting to a doctor, housing aid, and the state’s also gotten some economic development money for housing. The grant is funded under Title Two of the Ryan White CARE act, money that goes to every state and some territories. Iowa’s been getting the federal grants ever since Congress authorized the Ryan White fund a decade ago.
