New Jersey HIV/AIDS Planning Group (NJHPG) is a collaborative formed by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior
Services (NJDHSS), Division of HIV, STD and TB Services (DHSTS)
that combines HIV Care and Treatment and HIV Prevention efforts in order to make the best use of resources for both, while improving
efficiency and effectiveness in planning in the state of New Jersey.
NJHPG is concerned about all New Jerseyans infected and/or affected by HIV/AIDS. The current HIV/AIDS pattern in New Jersey suggests that
infection rates disproportianately affect African American and Latino men and women, and white men who have sex with men. In addition, NJHPG
is especially committed to persons living with HIV/AIDS and youth, since many are not yet patterned. Please visit the
New Jersey Comprehensive HIV/AIDS Services Plan and the
Care and Treatment Comprehensive Plan to learn more.
NJHPG is comprised of up to 40 elected members from throughout New Jersey. They are selected through application for their expertise
and/or as representatives of governmental and non-governmental providers, affected communities, persons at risk for or living with HIV.
Public participation and input is welcomed at monthly NJHPG Main Meetings and at monthly HIV/AIDS Issues Committee Meetings. The Executive
and Governance Committees are open to members only and deal with administrative matters. Please visit Past Presentations
to learn what topics have been discussed.
