Broward County HIV Prevention Planning Council (BCHPPC)

What is the BCHPPC?

The Broward County HIV Prevention Planning Council (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 a jurisdictional HIV prevention plan (Jurisdictional Prevention Plan 2012-2016).
