Wisconsin HIV Community Planning



UW - Madison HIV Outreach Project, Community Planning

A Partnership of the Wisconsin HIV Program and the University of Wisconsin - Madison

The Statewide Action Planning Group (SAPG), part of the WI HIV Outreach Project, is an appointed advisory group to the Wisconsin Division of Public Health (DPH) HIV Program. SAPG assists in the development, implementation and prioritization of HIV prevention and care services in Wisconsin.

Community planning in WI consists of two parts: community engagement and the Statewide Action Planning Group (SAPG).

Community Engagement
Community engagement requires a collaborative interactive process that results in identifying specific strategies to ensure a coordinated and seamless approach to accessing HIV prevention, care, and treatment services for the highest risk populations. This should include ongoing communication and interaction with key stakeholders, HIV service providers and consumers of HIV care, including those not part of SAPG who can best inform and support the goals of the HIV planning process.

Statewide Action Planning Group (SAPG)
Twenty-five to thirty ambassadors facilitate communication in all five regions of the state, participate in developing a joint HIV prevention and care services plan and advise the WI HIV Program on the development, implementation and prioritization of HIV prevention and care services in Wisconsin. Members for the Statewide Action Planning Group are chosen through a competitive application and selection process.
