AFFECTED COMMUNITY COMMITTEE
Rodney Mills & Isis Torrente, 2019 Committee Co-Chairs
This committee is designed to acknowledge the collective importance of consumer participation in Planning Council strategic activities and provide consumer education on HIV-related matters. The committee will serve as a place where consumers can safely and in an environment of trust discuss Planning Council work plans and activities. This committee will verify consumer participation on each of the standing committees of the Planning Council, with the exception of the Steering Committee (the Chair of the Affected Community Committee will represent the committee on the Steering Committee).
When providing consumer education, the committee should not use pharmaceutical representatives to present educational information. Once a year, the committee may host a presentation where all HIV-related drug representatives are invited.
The committee will consist of persons living with HIV, their caregivers (friends or family members) and others. All members of the Planning Council who self-disclose as living with HIV are requested to be a member of the Affected Community Committee, however membership on a committee for individuals living with HIV will not be restricted to the Affected Community Committee.
Regular Meeting Date/Time: The Affected Community Committee meets each month on second Monday after the Council Meeting at 1:30 p.m..
Regular Meeting Location: The Affected Community Committee meets at different locations so that consumers can sit in on a meeting, ask questions and have a voice in allocating approximately $26 million dollars for HIV services in the Greater Houston area.
