The HIV Planning Group (HPG) is a group of individuals united for the common purpose to contribute to HIV care and prevention planning across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Committee members serve by virtue of their life experiences and expertise and are not functioning as representatives of any agency or organizational affiliation. The Committee is charged with developing the multi-year Plan to include objectives and recommended interventions and activities.
In addition, they review the Department of Health's applications for funding from The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Heath Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). They also provide input and recommendations to the Division of HIV/AIDS on other care and prevention related issues.
The current community advisory, called the HIV Planning Group (HPG), will assist the Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) as it writes the Integrated Care and Prevention Plan.
