2017 National ADAP Monitoring Project Annual Report

The National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD) has published the 2017 National ADAP Monitoring Project Annual Report and its accompanying resources, which provide comprehensive information on AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAPs). Over the course of time, there have been significant shifts in funding and client need. While ADAPs have worked to meet those needs, they have sometimes found themselves unable to serve all those in need of services. Lessons have been learned from these circumstances and ADAPs continue to look to identify how they can meet client need and ensure program sustainability. At a time now when ADAPs are documenting program stability, it is imperative that ADAPs look back on how challenges were resolved and look to the future of client needs and determine ways to prepare for the future. ADAPs are at an unprecedented juncture of being able to look to target resources to populations that need them most, to partner with the RWPB to ensure that the whole client’s needs are met, and to identify ways to bolster treatment for individuals’ health. This report explores those issues and features key data related to the broader Ryan White Part B (RWPB) program and client services, including budget, expenditures, client utilization, and viral load suppression. This inclusion reflects ADAPs’ synergistic work with the broader RWPB program to ensure that the whole client’s needs are met. Read the full report.
