HIV Elimination

The Fulton County Department for HIV Elimination serves in a leadership role in the development of a coordinated effort to get to no new cases of of HIV in metropolitan Atlanta.

Formerly known as the Ryan White department, the department continues to manage the Atlanta area Ryan White Part A grants representing millions in annual federal funding each year. These funds are used to improve the availability and quality of core medical services and support services for low-income, uninsured, and underinsured individuals and families affected by HIV in the 20-County Atlanta Eligible Metropolitan Area (EMA).

The department is planning for the start-up of a new program beginning in 2020 as part of the US Government’s “Ending the Epidemic: A Plan for America”. This initiative will bring additional resources to support the department’s work in Fulton, Cobb, DeKalb and Gwinnett Counties to reduce the number of new HIV cases.  

The Department of HIV Elimination is also bringing together individuals and organizations from across the region to develop a plan to meet community needs, building upon the work of Fulton County's HIV Task Force and the Metropolitan Atlanta HIV Health Services Planning Council.
