oral health fact sheet, HRSA

People living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) experience a high incidence of common oral health problems (e.g., dental decay/cavities, gingivitis) as well as other oral health problems that are directly related to HIV infection. Between 32 and 46 percent of PLWHA will have at least one major HIV-related oral health problem—bacterial, viral, and fungal infections as well as cancer and ulcers—in the course of their disease. This factsheet describes the HRSA resources available for PLWHA through the Ryan White program.
