Integrated Planning Group - IPG

HIV/Viral Hepatitis/Sexually Transmitted Infection Planning Group


What is the IPG?

The IPG is an advisory group to the HIV/STD/TB Section of the Oregon Health Authority.

The group helps develop a statewide plan for ending new HIV transmissions in Oregon, as well as co-occurring viral hepatitis, and other sexually transmitted infections. This includes advising OHA on ways to increase testing, prevent new infections, ensure high-quality and accessible treatment, and eliminate disparities

Meeting information

The IPG meeting page contains dates and agendas for upcoming meetings and notes from previous meetings.

Due to COVID-19 health and safety restrictions, IPG meetings are currently of shorter duration and are held online. Request for public comment may be submitted through our online form.

More ways to get involved

Portland Area HIV Services Planning Council: This community involvement group is dedicated to improving the quality of life for those infected and/or affected by HIV/AIDS in the Portland area, and to assist members of our community in taking a leadership role in the planning and assessment of HIV resources.

Why join?

The IPG recognizes the need to amplify the voices of groups who are currently underrepresented and impacted by HIV. Therefore, the IPG is currently only accepting applications from people in Oregon who are Black, African American, or African immigrants; Hispanic or Latinx; transgender women; or people of color who are living with HIV.

Contribute: Advise on statewide plans to address HIV and co-infections. Diverse perspectives related to the group’s goals of increasing testing, expanding prevention, ensuring treatment, and eliminating disparities are welcome. The IPG meets three to four times per year.
