Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The vision of the Nashville Regional HIV Planning Council is to eliminate HIV through working together as a community. How we get to making this difference is through: •Collecting and assessing data together. •Ensuring the delivery of accessible and quality services to people living with HIV and AIDS. •Creating meaningful community partnerships. •Eliminating disparities where we can. •Reducing stigma and promoting public awareness around this disease.
The Planning Council is a community body established under thefederal Ryan White Part A Program. While anyone can apply to be a member of the Planning Council the members are finally appointed by the Mayor of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County; accoring to the recruitment needs of the council. The council has several committees and we always welcome interest in helping our board with relevant skils or knowledge.
The Planning Council has some primary duties, these include:
Develop and implement policies and council operations.
Assess needs of those living with HIV in the community.
Do comprehensive planning in order to ensure an accessible system of care.
Strategically allocate funds to ensure an accessible system of care.
Help to ensure coordination with other planning bodies locally, throughout the State and nationally.
Develop standards of care for all funded services.
- In addition the Planning Council focuses attention on addressing disparities in HIV care.
At this time the Membership Committee of the Planning Council is especially interested in those that might have skills that fit one of our committees - committees meet approximately once a month and would require a volunteer commitment of three to four hours of a month. Contact us for more details.
