Supporting Community Planning for HIV/AIDS Care and Prevention in the Philadelphia area

We support the decision-making body that plans HIV care and prevention services in the Philadelphia area: the Philadelphia EMA HIV Integrated Planning Council (HIPC).

We also assist the Positive Committee, a group that supports and enhances the participation of people living with HIV/AIDS in the community planning process through educational activities and outreach.

As a part of our work supporting the efforts of the planning bodies, we:

  • assess needs
  • produce literature reviews
  • conduct community outreach and educational activities
  • write comprehensive plans
  • record and monitor official processes (including meeting minutes)
  • collaborate with the AIDS Activities Coordinating Office (AACO) and other community and governmental organizations
  • and, provide logistical and administrative support.


All meetings are open to the public. Please join us.
