The Broward County Jurisdictional HIV Prevention Plan is the product of a collaborative process conducted through meetings, listening tours and Think Thanks in which HIV prevention, care, and treatment providers and agencies all participated. This plan focuses on scale-up of health department and community collaborations designed to reach the county’s “priority populations” through new and innovative initiatives.
The primary focus of the Broward County HIV Prevention Planning Council (BCHPPC) is high-impact prevention efforts that target the highest risk populations. The BCHPPC is comprised of 21 appointed voting members. The BCHPPC structure includes an Executive Team, High Impact Prevention Team, Epidemiology/Research Team, Policy Team as well as six (6) Advisory Groups representing the disproportionately affected populations.
HIV prevention programs are coordinated by the Florida Department of Health in Broward County.
