Module 6. Integrated/Comprehensive Planning

February 2020

Planning CHATT


This module describes the development and use of an integrated/comprehensive plan that sets multi-year goals and objectives for the EMA or TGA and serves as the foundation for the PC/PB’s annual planning cycle. Plan development, implementation, progress assessment, and updating are a joint effort of the PC/PB and recipient, and the Integrated HIV Prevention and Care Plans for 2017-2021 often reflect collaboration by RWHAP Part A and Part B programs and HIV prevention and care recipients. The module explains the roles played by the PC/PB and other bodies in RWHAP integrated/comprehensive planning.
