The Jewish Healthcare Foundation is the fiscal agent for Ryan White Part B funding, which sub-grants federal and state funds to 12 agencies in the 11-county region of Southwestern Pennsylvania to provide supportive services to people living with HIV. Additionally, the HIV/AIDS team sub-grants federal and state funding under the Minority AIDS Initiative (MAI) to 12 agencies across the Commonwealth. MAI supports programming aimed at re-engaging individuals living with HIV into medical care and treatment. Finally, AIDS Free Pittsburgh is a five-year local implementation of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy funded by UPMC and Highmark. It engages 22 partners comprised of local AIDS service organizations, researchers, and persons living with HIV. The goal of the Strategy is to reduce new HIV and AIDS cases by 75% by the year 2020. AIDS Free Pittsburghs data show a 30% reduction in new HIV cases and a 56% reduction in new AIDS cases in Allegheny County from 2015 to 2017.24 30%PARTNERS REDUCTION INFUNDED NEW HIV CASESJewish Healthcare Foundation|2018 Year in Review 9'
