North Shore University Hospital (NSUH) has been awarded an $837,935 federal grant to provide HIV care and support services for women, infants, children and youth along with their affected family members in 2017-18.

The Ryan White Part D grant, awarded by the federal Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), is one of only 116 programs nationally that received funding. The bulk of the funding supports HIV specialists and mental health providers to ensure access to cutting edge pediatric, adolescent, OB/GYN and adult HIV care. David Rosenthal D.O., Ph.D., is the primary investigator of this grant and medical director for the Center for Young Adult, Adolescent and Pediatric HIV at Northwell Health. Dr. Rosenthal has worked on the grant since its inception in 2009.

“Women, children and youth living with HIV have unique challenges that are specific to their age and gender,” said Dr. Rosenthal. “The Ryan White Part D program allows the Northwell Health Center for Young Adult Adolescent and Pediatric Health to specifically address these patients’ individual needs and to provide them with outstanding comprehensive health care. This grant allows Northwell Health to provide resources specifically aimed at helping families living with HIV.”

Approximately $2.36 billion in Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program grants have been allocated to cities, counties, states and local community-based organizations for 2017. This funding backs medical care and support services to more than half a million people living with the disease in the United States.
