The NH HIV Planning Group was first organized as an HIV Prevention Community Planning Group in 1994 as the result of a National Mandate.
As the HIV epidemic changed, so did HIV Prevention Community Planning, evolving into HIV Planning that encompasses both HIV prevention and HIV care services. This combined effort allows NH to work toward meeting the National HIV Strategy.
As the group evolved, so did the Guiding Principles.
The current HIV Planning Group is focused on developing and promoting strategies that enhance seamless access to coordinated and collaborative services for residents of NH. In that effort much emphasis is placed on providing education about HIV and related issues. The belief is that increased education about any and all HIV-related issues will result in greater understanding and collaboration.
There are a variety of ways interested individuals can get involved in HIV Planning.
