Supporting community planning for HIV/AIDS services in the greater Philadelphia area

The Office of HIV Planning supports the decision-making body that plans HIV care and prevention services in the Philadelphia area: the Philadelphia EMA HIV Integrated Planning Council (HIPC), as well as its committees.

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
  • review literature
  • 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
  • provide logistical and administrative support
