The Ryan White HIV Services Planning Council works to improve the quality of life for those living with HIV/AIDS. It ensures that community members play lead roles in planning and assessment of HIV resources.

We are a 30-member community involvement group that:

  • Decides how to spend $3 million in federal funds on programs that help people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS.
  • Plans the delivery of medical and social services in Clackamas, Columbia, Multnomah, Yamhill, Washington and Clark counties.
  • Involves the community to assess healthcare and social service needs of people living with HIV.
