Become a Member of the HPG

Anyone in San Diego County can apply to become a member of the HIV Planning Group (HPG).

The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009 (RWTEA) requires that Planning Council 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.

Consumer involvement is important at all levels of the Planning Group processes. Consumers participate in the Consumer Committee and in other committees of the Planning Group. 

The Membership Committee reviews applications and interviews applicants. If interested in membership, complete an application and email HPG Support Staff - HPG.HHSA@sdcounty.ca.gov
