AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAPs) are state administered programs that provide HIV/AIDS medications to low-income individuals living with HIV disease who have little or no coverage from private or third party insurance. ADAPs were originally authorized by the Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency (CARE) Act, which was enacted in 1990, and reauthorized in 1996 and again in 2000. Currently, ADAPs are authorized under the Ryan White HIV/ADIS Treatment Modernization Act of 2006. The intent of state and federal legislation is to assure that ADAP funds are used only for the purchase of ADAP formulary drugs that cannot be paid for through other sources. ADAP must be the payer of last resort.

ADAP started as a Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) demonstration project to provide zidovudine (AZT), the first drug approved by Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat HIV infection. Since that time, ADAPs have significantly expanded to cover other FDA approved drugs to treat HIV infection and HIV-related opportunistic infections. Arkansas AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) services are available to all eligible residents of Arkansas. There are 11 enrollment sites located around the state.
