Status Update for STOP AIDS Supporters

Effective April 1, STOP AIDS’ Ryan White Part B funding will be redistributed to Caracole, a partner in serving those in our community living with HIV.  Though more details are forthcoming, we are currently in the midst of working with Caracole to ensure a smooth transition for all of our clients.

Two weeks ago STOP AIDS received notification from the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) that our Ryan White funding would be granted to another agency which will provide case management services in the Greater Cincinnati region.  While we are disappointed in the ODH’s initial decision to cut our funding, we are comforted to know that Caracole will be resuming our former position of effectively counseling those living with HIV/AIDS.

Despite the reallocation of case management funding, STOP AIDS will continue providing prevention education and HIV testing to combat this life-threatening disease in Greater Cincinnati. Your support is appreciated now more than ever. To make a financial contribution, please visit
