New Horizon Family Health Services’ Ryan White Program will be expanding their services through a grant awarded by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SC DHEC). The Ryan White Program strives to provide quality care to those living with HIV and AIDS.

New services will include medical case management, pharmaceutical assistance and increased access to oral health care, and health insurance premium and cost-sharing assistance under the AIDS Drug Assistance Program.

“Expansion of our services will support national goals in ending the HIV epidemic. Increased access to medication and resources can help reduce new HIV diagnosis and increase viral suppression and improve health outcomes,” Scott Brown, New Horizon Family Health Services’ Ryan White Program Manager said.

The Ryan White Program serves over 1,200 patients within 10 counties of South Carolina, including Greenville County.
