California Plann​ing Group
California Planning Group in Long Beach, 2023

The California Planning Group (CPG) is the statewide HIV planning body that enables key stakeholders, communities, and providers to engage in active and ongoing dialogue with the Office of AIDS (OA) to reach the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy and the statewide Integrated Plan. 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.
