The ACE TA Center Advisory Council (AAC) supports and informs project activities based on real-world experiences at the intersection of HIV service delivery and health care access. The AAC consists of 10 members who reflect diverse communities most affected by HIV, and are representatives from state health departments and community-based organizations (CBOs) across the country, as well as national and regional policy organizations. The AAC includes two subgroups: the Strategy and Policy subgroup and the RWHAP Front Line Experience subgroup.
Strategy and Policy
The Strategy and Policy subgroup includes leaders from HIV organizations who are active at the state and/or national level. Subgroup members share their broader perspectives, and make recommendations to inform the ACE TA Center’s overall project strategy.
RWHAP Front Line Experience
The RWHAP Front Line Experience subgroup includes HIV front line staff and program managers. Subgroup members provide a frontline perspective based on their experiences and interactions supporting people with HIV.
