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.
