TRADTIOTIONAL : People living with HIV/AIDS; people working in prevention programs at local CBOs; HIV providers, researchers and academiciansNON-TRADITIONAL : Local businesses (barbershops, bodegas), Parks & Recreation staff, places that have access to the people that we need to reach.
IDENTIFY: Who are the key stakeholders? Who are the HIV service providers (including those who cover syndemics that co-occur with HIV)D&D: The engagement process. Strategies used to recruit & retain partnering organizations and used to convene the HPG meetingsCONVENE: Means just that…holding HPG meetings, sessions with stakeholders…etcGATHER INFO: Look at the local Epi profile, what other add’l info do we need to make the best recommendations/decisions? Understand the Jurisdictional Plan.DISCUSS OPPS and CHALLENGES: What’s working in HIV prevention? What’s not? (i.e. servies in high-impact areas, access to services, # of newly diagnosed and linked to care, policy issues)MONITOR: Look at the data…have we moved the needle?REVIEW & UPDATE: What progress has been made? Updates should be made based on this answer
JURISDICTIONAL PLAN: Existing resources, Gaps and Needs in HIV Prevention Services, Epidemiological Profile, Prevention, Care, and Treatment
Example of what can be done with local surveillance data…
Together, all of these things…effective HIV Prevention Planning + Effective use of surveillance data + Community Leadership we will strive to move the needle.
It’s possible to move the needle.

What have we learned?
Moving the needle

What is HIV Planning?
“…a process through which people from
different walks of life, interests,
responsibilities, and involvement in HIV
come together as a group to inform and
support the development and
implementation of a Jurisdictional HIV
Fundamentals of HIV Planning
Participatory & collaborative process
Seek out key stakeholders
Open process for membership
Adopt a HIP approach to HIV prevention
Scientific basis of programming decisions (i.e.
The 3-step HIV Planning Process
Results Oriented Engagement
Each of these steps has clear objectives/activities
In order to achieve the objectives of HIV Planning,
stakeholders should represent the diversity of high-
risk populations of the local epidemic and
representatives from the HIV workforce community
that provide prevention, care and treatment
Traditional vs Non-traditional stakeholders
Stakeholders vs HPG Members
Results-oriented engagement process*
(to ensure that Philadelphia has the best Jurisdictional HIV Prevention plan)
*These activities are carried
out by HPG membership
The health department, in collaboration with the HPG,
will develop a Jurisdictional HIV Prevention Plan to
include the collaboration and coordination of HIV
prevention care and treatment.
Although the plan is written by the health department, it
is with the knowledge and expertise that the HPG
members AND stakeholders/community experts bring to
Remember, YOU are the expert. We need to hear what’s
working, what’s not working, what might work better…etc.
In a nutshell…
HIV Planning is a process to inform & support the
development AND implementation for a Jurisdictional
HIV Prevention Plan
This process is inclusive, diverse and collective
Remember, local planning is the best way to respond
to local HIV prevention needs & priorities
GOAL: Strengthen the impact of local HIV efforts by
aligning them with the National HIV/AIDS Strategy
What Have We Learned
CDC’s approach to reducing HIV infections in the US
Influence of NHAS & Prevention Benefits of Treatment for
Importance of using surveillance data to support HIV
i.e. let the numbers/science guide us
These topics will be covered in HPG meetings throughout the
What Have We Learned
(HPG Bootcamp) – cont.
Implementation of the HIV Planning Guidance
Implementing the revised guidance in HIV
planning groups (including activities)
Stakeholder Identification & Engagement,
Roles & Responsibilities, HPG Membership,
Evaluating the Process
Topics to be covered in September – one day training (data
What Have We Learned
Importance of utilizing surveillance data
CDC is making data more accessible
interactive platform for accessing data collected by CDC
Iinteractive online map illustrating the prevalence of HIV in
the United States. The national, state and local map views
on AIDSVu allow users to visually explore the HIV epidemic
alongside critical resources such as HIV testing center
locations, HIV treatment center locations, and NIH-Funded
HIV Prevention & Vaccine Trials Sites.
Community needs to ensure that we have access to
our local data
As members what do you need?
Specific speakers? / Specific topics?
Ensuring that the HPG is meeting your expectations
After each HPG meeting. Quick 3-5 question survey. Looking at
results at the next meeting.
Other ideas for Community Leadership / Effective
Remember the ultimate goal…
MOVING THE NEEDLE
Work towards making Philadelphia’s “cascade” looks
more like a mesa
