Broward County Prevention Planning Partnership
The Broward County HIV Prevention Planning Council (BCHPPC) is a government-community partnership created to provide assisting in planning as well as advise the Florida Department of Health in Broward County in fostering a coordinated system of care, where new HIV infections are rare and when they do occur, every person regardless of age, gender identity, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, or socio-economic circumstances, will have unfettered access to high quality, life extending care, free of stigma and discrimination.
The BCHPPC is built on a model of partnership between the federal government, local and state health department and community participation. HIV prevention planning is a process that is based on the concept that the best way to respond to the HIV epidemic is through local decision making.
Membership of the BCHPPC is comprised of a maximum of 21 members who apply and are appointed to represent various expertise and multiple community experiences. The membership is selected to achieve parity, inclusion and representation of the priority populations. The body includes key stakeholders in HIV prevention, care and related services and organizations that can best inform and support the development and implementation of the Broward County Integrated HIV Prevention and Care Plan 2017-2021.
