Houston Health Department
In Sept. 2016, the Ryan White Planning Council and the Houston HIV Prevention Planning Group released the The Houston Area Comprehensive HIV Prevention and Care Services Plan for 2017 – 2021.
The purpose of the plan is to:
- Describe the current system of HIV prevention and care services in the Houston area;
- Describe an ideal system of HIV prevention and care services for the Houston area;
- Outline the specific activities needed to make progress toward this ideal system; and
- Describe how progress toward an ideal system will be measured.
The plan is intended to be used by the Ryan White Planning Council and the Houston HIV Planning Group, by Administrative Agents and grantees, by providers of HIV prevention and care services as well as by partners, stakeholders, and other decision-makers as they respond to the needs of people at risk for or infected with HIV.
