Thank You, Ryan White; ADAP Saves Lives
By: Brandon M. Macsata, CEO, ADAP Advocacy Association
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
In 1984, during the midst of the public hysteria over the emergence of AIDS
in the United States, it was a 13-year old boy from Indiana who defined the
courage of a nation. That young boy's name was Ryan White.
Decades later, we honor that young boy from Indiana by celebrating the passage
of the law named after him: Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency
(CARE) Act. As the nation's only public healthcare program specifically designed
to provide supports and services for people living with HIV/AIDS, it is hard
to truly measure the impact it has had in linking patients to timely, appropriate
care and treatment. Simply put; it has saved hundreds of thousands
of lives since 1990!
