Measuring What Matters:
Allocation, Planning, and Quality Assessment for the Ryan White CARE Act
The Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency (CARE) Act funds care and support services for medically underserved individuals with HIV. This report, mandated by Congress in PL 106-345, assesses whether using the reported numbers of HIV cases in states and selected metropolitan areas would ensure that these funds are more equitably distributed.
These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on November 7, 2003 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of The National Academies Press.
