This is a policy analysis of the Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency (CARE) Act of 1990, the most comprehensive federal policy designed to deal with HIV/AIDS in the United States. The analysis also includes the reauthorizations of 1996 and 2000 and the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Modernization Act of 2006. The analysis focuses on the historical events leading up to the enactment of the legislation, the primary components of the policy, recent trends in the epidemic affecting the reauthorizations, and future needs of the HIV/AIDS community. The analysis found that while the CARE Act was introduced as an effective emergency response in 1990, as of 2009, the Act is the backbone of HIV/AIDS care in the United States and needs to be restructured to reflect the current needs of the epidemic.
