About the Ryan White Planning Council

The Ryan White Part A Planning Council (RWPC) prioritizes services and allocates Ryan White Part A funding to improve care for people living with HIV/AIDS in Philadelphia, Southern New Jersey and the PA Suburbs. The Planning Council assesses needs, helps to create a plan for HIV care and prevention services, and establishes priorities for the use of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part A funds.

To do this, the Council performs a great deal of work throughout the year to assess needs, evaluate financial and program activities, and coordinate with other local and state entities. They plan for funding for Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, Chester, and Delaware Counties in PA, as well as Gloucester, Camden, Burlington, and Salem Counties in NJ. 

The term Part A refers to a specific section of the Ryan White Program. Services covered under Part A cover a wide range, from medications and medical care to food and other basic assistance. The Ryan White CARE Act, and its later versions, was enacted by Congress to ensure the quality and availability of care for people living with HIV, and fills in funding gaps for services when all other funding has been used.

The Ryan White Part A Planning Council of the Philadelphia EMA meets on the second Thursday of the month from 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. Please see the calendar for upcoming meeting information. You can learn more about how the Planning Council works through its bylaws.
