The Connecticut Department of Public Health (DPH) recognizes the Connecticut HIV
Planning Consortium (CHPC) as its primary vehicle for statewide HIV prevention and care planning. The CHPC convenes diverse stakeholders - including people with HIV (PWH), service providers, health specialists, and a range of community members - with a shared goal of creating a coordinated statewide prevention and care system.
The CHPC works to prevent the continuing spread of HIV/AIDS in Connecticut, and to improve services for those infected by HIV/AIDS. The CHPC embraces diversity - of race and ethnicity, life experiences, philosophies, cultures, gender identities, and sexual orientations. Mutual respect and a sense of urgency to reduce the impact and presence of HIV/AIDS motivate CHPC members to produce a strong and thorough Integrated HIV Prevention and Care Plan.
The CHPC receives planning and technical assistance from numerous DPH staff members affiliated with the TB, HIV, STD and Viral Hepatitis Section. Three units in particular deliver consistent and critical support for the CHPC: the HIV Prevention Unit; the Health Care and Support Services Unit, and the HIV/AIDS Surveillance Unit.

Two teams serve as a united Data and Assessment Committee (DAC): (1) the Quality & Performance Measures (QPM) Team; and (2) the Needs Assessment Projects (NAP) Team. The teams work in conjunction to review and compile data to implement planning work and aid in required document production, and perform separate data-related functions.
The QPM Team supports quality improvement. Click here for more information.
The Ending the Syndemic (ETS) Committee (formerly Getting to Zero) advances recommendations in the statewide Getting to Zero plan, coordinates ETS resource partners, and promotes evidence-based strategies and efforts to scale these strategies statewide.
