Working Together to Eliminate HIV in Nashville
The vision of the Nashville Regional HIV Planning Council is to eliminate HIV by working together as a community. The Nashville Regional HIV Planning Council is the planning body for the Nashville Transitional Grant Area (NTGA) of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Part A program. The program provides healthcare and support services for individuals living with HIV who lack necessary resources.
The Council represents the best interests of those both infected and affected by HIV/AIDS in Cannon, Cheatham, Davidson, Dickson, Hickman, Macon, Robertson, Rutherford, Smith, Sumner, Trousdale, Williamson, and Wilson counties.
About the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program
The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program provides comprehensive care to people living with HIV. The Program awards grants to cities and communities that are severely affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Currently, the Program helps organizations provide HIV care and treatment services to more than half of all people diagnosed with HIV in the United States. Working collaboratively, the Council seeks to identify needs within the community and provide much-needed services to those who are uninsured or underinsured.
