The Connecticut HIV Planning Consortium (CHPC)
Connecticut’s Integrated HIV Prevention and Care Planning Body

The CHPC is a diverse group of stakeholders – including people living with HIV (PLWH), 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 spread of HIV/AIDS in Connecticut, and to improve services for those infected by HIV/AIDS. The CHPC embraces diversity – of races and ethnicities, life experiences, philosophies, cultures, 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 for the state.

The CHPC meets on the third Wednesday of the month January-August in Hartford. CHPC meetings are open to the public.

Positive Prevention CT (PPCT)

Positive Prevention CT (PPCT) is a group of HIV prevention providers and consumers funded by the CT Department of Public Health to create social marketing/health communication strategies focusing on populations most at risk for HIV infection in Connecticut.

PPCT’s vision is to reduce HIV infections through prevention education (including PrEP and HIV testing) to at-risk individuals, specifically men who have sex with men (MSM) of color in Connecticut.

PPCT’s mission is to educate, decrease stigma, encourage and bring awareness of HIV testing to at-risk individuals, including a focus on MSM of color, via social marketing/health communications campaigns developed by Positive Prevention CT.

PPCT is currently seeking new members to re-energize the group and help create exciting new HIV prevention campaigns for the coming year. To join our e-list and get meeting notifications email jchase@aids-ct.org.

PPCT meets on the second Monday of the month in varying locations.
