S.C. HIV PLANNING COUNCIL (HPC)
The South Carolina HIV Planning Council is an integrated HIV prevention and care planning group. The mission of the Planning Council is to develop a comprehensive, statewide HIV Prevention and Care Plan for a responsive, effective, and efficient continuum of services for persons living with HIV/AIDS and those at risk for HIV infection.
In accordance with direction from its funding agencies, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), the goal of the HPC is to improve the effectiveness of South Carolina’s HIV prevention and care programs by strengthening the scientific basis, relevance and focus of prevention and care strategies and interventions. This goal is accomplished in collaboration with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) in support of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy by carrying out the steps in HIV high impact prevention planning and HRSA guidelines for the Ryan White Treatment Modernization Act program grantees.
