New Jersey HIV/AIDS Planning Group
New Jersey HIV/AIDS Planning Group (NJHPG) is a collaborative formed by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services (NJDHSS), Division of HIV, STD and TB Services (DHSTS) that combines HIV Care and Treatment and HIV Prevention efforts in order to make the best use of resources for both, while improving efficiency and effectiveness in planning in the state of New Jersey.
NJHPG is concerned about all New Jerseyans infected and/or affected by HIV/AIDS. The current HIV/AIDS pattern in New Jersey suggests that infection rates disproportionately affect African American and Latino men and women, and white men who have sex with men. In addition, NJHPG is especially committed to persons living with HIV/AIDS and youth, since many are not yet patterned. Please visit the New Jersey Comprehensive HIV/AIDS Services Plan and the Care and Treatment Comprehensive Plan to learn more.
NJHPG is comprised of up to 40 elected members from throughout New Jersey. They are selected through application for their expertise and/or as representatives of governmental and non-governmental providers, affected communities, persons at risk for or living with HIV.
Public participation and input is welcomed at monthly NJHPG Main Meetings and at monthly HIV/AIDS Issues Committee Meetings. The Executive and Governance Committees are open to members only and deal with administrative matters. Please visit Past Presentations to learn what topics have been discussed.
