One-fourth of new HIV cases in the U.S. are among young people (ages 13-24). Cases are overwhelmingly among gay/bisexual men, particularly African Americans. A large proportion of youth who are HIV infected do not know it and are thus are not receiving care. Youth receiving Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) services have higher rates of retention in care and better viral suppression, compared with youth not receiving RWHAP services, although younger RWHAP clients do not fair as well as adult RWHAP clients.
