The Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) released a policy update and letter "that provides guidance regarding how Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) funds may be used to provide expungement services for people with HIV who have had legal system involvement. The expungement of criminal records is an effective way to remove barriers to care and services, protect privacy, mitigate stigma, and support successful reentry into the community. HRSA HAB remains committed to serving individuals involved with the legal system and strives to improve health outcomes and reduce health disparities for people with HIV across the United States."
