Abstract: HRSA’s AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) is funded through the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, Part B, Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act, which provides funding to states and territories through a grant. ADAP provides medications for the treatment of HIV to eligible clients who are low income and uninsured or underinsured.

The following states, territories, and Pacific Island jurisdictions are eligible to apply for RWHAP ADAP funding: All 50 states, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Republic of Palau, the Federated States of Micronesia, and the Republic of the Marshall Islands. As part of the funding requirements, ADAPs submit reports concerning information on clients served, eligibility requirements, pharmaceuticals prescribed, pricing and other sources of support to provide HIV medication treatment, cost data, and coordination with Medicaid. The AIDS Drug Assistance Program Data Report (ADR) is submitted annually and consists of a Recipient Report and a client-level data file. The Recipient Report is a collection FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 of basic information about grant recipient characteristics and policies. The client-level data is a collection of records (one record for each client enrolled in the ADAP), which includes the client’s encrypted unique identifier, basic demographic data, enrollment information, services received, and clinical data. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program requires the submission of annual reports by the Secretary of HHS to the appropriate committees of Congress. The HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) uses the ADR to evaluate the national impact of the ADAP, by providing data on clients being served, services being delivered, and costs associated with these services. The ADR is also used to determine eligibility for the ADAP Supplement component of the RWHAP Part B grant (X07). The client-level data is used to monitor health outcomes of clients living with HIV receiving care and treatment through the ADAP, to monitor the use of ADAP funds in addressing the HIV epidemic and its impact on vulnerable communities, and to track progress toward achieving the national goals for HIV care and treatment. Likely Respondents: State/Territory ADAPs of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part B recipients. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose, or provide the information requested.
