Personal Fact of Ryan White

Ryan Wayne White was an American teenager who fought AIDS-related discrimination and helped educate people in the U. S. He was amongst the first public faces for AIDS/HIV in America and in fact his diagnoses demonstrated for the first time that AIDS was not exclusive to gay, minority, and poor people. His case started to gain national importance when his middle school in Indiana expelled him for contacting the disease and his family filed a lawsuit against the authorities, which they eventually won. At the time when White contracted the virus, not much was known about the disease and people acted out of ignorance, which doubled his struggle as he did not only have to fight with the disease but also had to fight against the social stigmas related to it.

His cause gained national importance and many celebrities came forward to help White spread the education on AIDS through his story of discrimination. He became the face for the disease and took part in the fundraising and educational campaigns for AIDS until his death. Congress passed the Ryan White Care Act in his honor, immediately after his death and the act still remains the largest provider of services for people living with HIV/AIDS in the United States.
