Planning Council old


  • The Metropolitan Atlanta HIV Health Services Planning Council (typically called the Planning Council) is established by the Chief Elected Official who is currently Chairman Robb Pitts.
  • By law, the Planning Council is responsible for setting the priorities for funding (such as medical care, oral health, transportation, etc.) and determining the amount of funds that should go to each of the priority areas.
  • The Planning Council is also responsible for many other things such as: comprehensive planning, assessing the need of people living with HIV in the 20-county area, developing standards of care as part of the clinical quality management function, evaluating the grantee’s process and getting funds quickly to service providers.
  • Planning Council members serve on at least one of the following Committees: Executive, Assessment, Priorities, Public Policy and Resource Development, Quality Management, Housing, Membership, Evaluations, and Procedures.
