Welcome to the State of California 

Office of AIDS

California Planning Group (CPG)

In order to ensure an appropriate response to HIV/AIDS in the state of California, the California Department of Public Health, Center for Infectious Diseases, Office of AIDS (OA) relies on community input through a variety of channels.  One such channel is the California Planning Group (CPG).  The main functions of this group are to work collaboratively with OA to develop a comprehensive HIV/AIDS surveillance, prevention, care, and treatment plan; to monitor the implementation of this plan; and to provide timely advice on emergent issues identified by OA and/or other key stakeholder parties.  CPG is committed to working openly in a group to make decisions and is guided by the principles of equity, fairness, and respectful engagement. 

CPG welcomes the participation and input of the general public.  Members of the public are welcome and encouraged to attend and observe any of the two face-to-face meetings in a given calendar year.  CPG values community input and relies on the full active participation of its members and on organized, well-managed, processes leading to careful deliberations and decisions.  

For more information on CPG membership, governance, progress, and opportunities to get involved, please select from the links below.
