Positive Committee

About the Positive Committee

The Positive Committee is for people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA). The Positive Committee supports and enhances the role of people living with HIV in the Planning Council. The Positive Committee is open to all HIV-positive individuals living in the Philadelphia area.

The Positive Committee supports the role of consumers of HIV services in planning and decision-making activities through regular trainings, special educational presentations, and group discussion.

The activities of the Positive Committee provide a unique opportunity for consumers of HIV services to educate other consumers and service providers about the needs of consumers, available services, and community resources. This committee also helps PLWHA to build the skills necessary to participate effectively in the activities and decision making of the Planning Council.  

This committee meets on the second Monday of the month from 12 p.m. - 2 p.m. Please see the calendar for upcoming meeting information.
