The NYC HIV Planning Group (HPG) (formerly known as the NYC PPG) is currently recruiting new members whose term will begin January 1, 2013.
The primary goal of the NYC HPG is to reduce the incidence of new HIV infections and disease in New York City. To this end the NYC HPG, a joint effort of community and governmental representatives and agencies, will work to inform the development or update of a comprehensive New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) Jurisdictional HIV Prevention Plan to be implemented and monitored, ensuring that activities and funding are aligned with the National HIV AIDS Strategy (NHAS) and the successful execution of High-Impact Prevention (HIP) programs and activities within communities. The NYC HPG will integrate multiple HIV community needs and set priorities for HIV prevention interventions and strategies for populations at high risk of HIV infection. The NYC HPG will also foster the integration of the HIV prevention and care community planning process into other relevant planning and policy efforts.
- HPG applicants must either live or work in New York City.
- Applicants who work for groups, entities or organizations that provide HIV prevention or HIV Prevention related services to clients residing in any of the boroughs of New York City are encouraged to apply.
- Individuals who are HIV+ are also encouraged to apply.
