People with HIV & Community Involvement

A core value of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program is engagement of people with HIV in their care and in their community's work to address the epidemic. This might include: 

  • Serving as members and leaders of planning bodies. See also our Planning resources.
  • Participating in community advisory boards to provide feedback to clinics on services and their design.
  • Serving as peer workers to other persons with HIV to engage and retain them in care.
  • Serving as volunteers and paid staff members in HIV agencies.
