The Steering Committee of the Ryan White Medical Providers Coalition (RWMPC) took to Capitol Hill April 15 to conduct nearly 50 meetings arranged by HIVMA with key House and Senate offices and educate legislators about the value and importance of the Ryan White program. Ryan White provides a comprehensive system of care that includes medical care and essential support services for people living with HIV who are uninsured or underinsured. 
 
RWMPC leaders also met with key administration officials from the Health Resources and Services Administration, HIV AIDS Bureau, the Health Resources and Services Administration, Bureau of Primary Health Care, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, and the Office of Management and Budget.
