The Part B Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Modernization Act provides health care and support services for individuals and families with HIV infection.

Services in Arizona are administered through HIV CARE Consortia and direct service contracts. Arizona has four Part B CARE regions; the Northern HIV/AIDS Forum may be contacted at the Arizona Department of Health Services at (602) 364-3610, the Pima County HIV/AIDS CARE Consortium and the Southeastern HIV/AIDS CARE Consortia both facilitated by the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona, (520) 770-0800, and the Western Direct Services region administered by the Yuma County Health Department (928) 317-4580.
