Ryan White Program


Named for HIV/AIDS activist Ryan White, this federally funded grant program offers testing, primary care, support and assistance for people and families living with HIV/AIDS.

Through screening, early intervention, education and disease prevention, the Ryan White Program aims to increase access to care and improve outcomes for those living with HIV/AIDS. We also offer additional services to ease the mental, social and financial challenges.

Get Screened Today

The Ryan White Program offers free, confidential, rapid HIV and Hepatitis C testing through private appointments at our program office in Queensbury and at Hudson Headwaters health centers, community agencies, college campuses, health departments, community events and county jails. HIV self-test kits are available in certain situations. Call or text us at 518-415-9220 to schedule your test.

Join a Support Group

We offer a twice-monthly support group for any active patient in our program. The group provides education, information sharing, informal conversations and social connections in a respectful and confidential setting. If you are interested in attending, please call 518-669-6899 for the schedule.

Self-Test Kits

The Ryan White Program offers self-test kits for those who believe they may have been exposed to HIV or are at high risk for exposure through sexual activity or sharing injection drugs. These free, rapid HIV testing kits are for personal use at home and are available to residents of Essex, Hamilton, Warren, Washington and Saratoga Counties. You do not need to be a Hudson Headwaters primary care patient to request a self-test kit. Call or text Joan Dupper at 518-415-9220 or email [email protected] to request one.
