The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) # 58821018 is to solicit applications that will enable the Iowa Department of Public Health (referred to as Department) to select the most qualified applicants to provide core medical and support services to people living with HIV (PLWH) through the Ryan White Part B Program.

Iowa’s Ryan White Part B Program (RWPB) meets the health care needs of people living with HIV (PLWH) by providing a comprehensive continuum of high-quality HIV core medical and support services, including a client-centered tiered system of case management that links Iowans to care and helps them to stay in care. It is critical that Iowa’s RWPB program serve PLWH from all ninety-nine counties in the state. Successful applicants will form a comprehensive network of service providers to ensure that PLWH have access to the services needed to achieve optimal health outcomes and to reduce transmission of HIV.

The Department is actively working to strengthen our capacity to address health inequities in Iowa. Health equity is defined as the attainment of the highest possible level of health for all people.  Achieving health equity requires providing the environmental, social, economic and other conditions in which all people have the opportunity to attain their highest possible level of health. This program promotes health equity by providing health and support services to low-income impacted by HIV and by using program data to understand and address disparities in health outcomes and risk behaviors among PLWH.
