Get Involved - Become a Member

The  Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009 (RWTEA) requires that HIV Planning Group membership include:

  • Representatives of certain professions, communities and government bodies;
  • Demographics that are similar to the local HIV/AIDS epidemic; and
  • At least 33% unaffiliated consumers*.

*   An unaffiliated consumer is a person living with HIV/AIDS (or the parent/guardian of an HIV-positive child) who does not work for an agency that receives funding through RWTEA Part A/B.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the HIV Planning Group or any of its committees, please contact HIV Planning Group Support at for more information.
