What Is the Ryan White HIV/Aids Grant Program?

The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program is a federally funded program that provides HIV-related services in the United States for those who do not have sufficient health care coverage or financial resources for coping with HIV disease. The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program exists to make sure you or your loved ones living with HIV can always receive the best care and support, regardless of your ability to pay or insurance status.

HIV Primary Care

New Bedford Community Health (NBCH) provides HIV primary care services for patients at our Dr. Laurel Miller Center within our facility. The HIV primary care clinics allow HIV patients to be seen in a primary care office setting alongside other patients seeking care at the location. This provides our patients with anonymity and the comfort of receiving care in a traditional office setting.

Our physicians and nurse practitioner are specially trained to provide routine medical care services to all populations, and they are highly experienced in HIV treatment, PrEP, and transgender health. This means that our providers treat the whole person and their medical conditions, not just HIV.
