End HIV/STI Oregon Statewide Planning Group

What is the End HIV/STI Oregon Statewide Planning Group?

The End HIV/STI Statewide Planning Group 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

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?

To amplify the voices of groups who are currently underrepresented and impacted by HIV, the group is currently seeking and prioritizing applications from people in Oregon who are Black or African American; Hispanic or Latino/a/x; American Indian or Alaska Native; transgender, non-binary, or gender diverse, with a focus on transgender women; people of color who are living with HIV; young people (ages 18-29); and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islanders.
