Broward County HIV Prevention Planning Council (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.

What is the BCHPPC?

Membership of the BCHPPC is comprised of a minimum 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 (Broward County Integrated HIV Prevention Plan 2017-2021).

Get involved. Become a Community Leader!

HIV prevention works best when there is community involvement. BCHPPC ensures that critical HIV prevention programs are informed by and succeed in reaching Broward County’s diverse populations. Your voice, input, and support is needed to help end this epidemic. Are you ready to join us?
