The HIV Planning Council (Council), established in 1992, provides advice and makes recommendations to the County Health Officer regarding HIV policy issues, serves as the Ryan White Planning Council as required by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act (The Act), and is the advisory body to the City of Anaheim for the expenditure of Housing Opportunities for Persons Living With AIDS (HOPWA) funds. The Council determines the priority of HIV service needs of the community and allocates funds to each service. Members of the Council are appointed by the Orange County Board of Supervisors and are individuals who are living with HIV and/or working in the field of HIV services.

“The Orange County HIV Planning Council, in partnership with affected communities, service providers, philanthropists, and public health professionals, will support an accessible, culturally competent continuum of HIV prevention and care services that promotes optimal health, fosters self-sufficiency, reduces stigma and discrimination, and results in a community where new HIV infections are rare.”
