Goals and Objectives of HIV Prevention Community Planning

Community planning supports broad-based community participation in HIV prevention planning.

Objective A. Implement an open recruitment process (outreach, nominations, and selection) for CPG membership.

Objective B. Ensure that the CPG(s) membership is representative of the diversity of populations most at risk for HIV infection and community characteristics in the jurisdiction, and includes key professional expertise and representation from key governmental and non-governmental agencies.

Objective C. Foster a community planning process that encourages inclusion and parity among community planning members.

Community planning identifies priority HIV prevention needs (a set of priority target populations and interventions for each identified target population) in each jurisdiction.

Objective D. Carry out a logical, evidence-based process to determine the highest priority, population-specific prevention needs in the jurisdiction.

Objective E. Ensure that prioritized target populations are based on an epidemiologic profile and a community services assessment.

Objective F. Ensure that prevention activities/interventions for identified priority target populations are based on behavioral and social science, outcome effectiveness, and/or have been adequately tested with intended target populations for cultural appropriateness, relevance, and acceptability.


Community planning ensures that HIV prevention resources target priority populations and interventions set forth in the comprehensive HIV prevention plan.

Objective G. Demonstrate a direct relationship between the Comprehensive HIV Prevention Plan and the Health Department Application for federal HIV prevention funding.

Objective H. Demonstrate a direct relationship between the Comprehensive HIV Prevention Plan and funded interventions.
