Welcome to the HIV Planning Council
2012-2015 Ryan White Comprehensive Plan
The purpose of this Plan is to develop a multi-year comprehensive and responsive system of care that addresses the needs and challenges of the community. The Comprehensive Plan is a living document that serves as a roadmap for the provision of the Ryan White Part A continuum of care that will be used to guide discussions and decision-making over the next three years.
The Comprehensive Plan reflects our community's vision and values regarding how best to deliver HIV/AIDS services, particularly in light of cutbacks in federal, state, and local resources. The planning process reflects a diverse perspective from members of the Broward County HIV Health Services Planning Council, affiliated and unaffiliated consumers, HIV service providers, representatives of community-based organizations, and other stakeholders.
The Comprehensive Plan provides an opportunity to achieve the vision of an “ideal” system of care through review of needs assessment data, existing resources to meet those needs and the review of barriers to care. The Plan will also aid the Ryan White Part A program in responding to changes in the epidemic, identification of individuals unaware of their HIV status and linking them to care, and to address the unmet need of those aware of their status but not in care. The Comprehensive Plan also considers the yet unknown implications to the Broward County service delivery system resulting from the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

I encourage you to review and comment on this plan as it is the planning document that will be utilized to develop the Ryan White Part A continuum of care. The Comprehensive Plan will be updated periodically to reflect any changes in the local epidemic that affect the service delivery need of the Broward County Eligible Metropolitan Area.
