Abstract

The Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA) provides health-care to underserved areas in the U.S. and addresses disparities in health-care among U.S. populations. HRSA’s Ryan White CARE Act provides HIV care and supportive services for persons with HIV and AIDS in the U.S. and its territories. Five projects were funded as Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) from 2001-2005, to improve care and access to HIV services along the U.S.-Mexican Border. These projects developed culturally appropriate and innovative outreach strategies, expanded counseling and testing in border communities, assured continuity of care through intensive case management services and increased clinical capacity through provider training.
