We are dedicated to providing comprehensive HIV prevention, care, and treatment services in New Jersey.

The New Jersey HIV Planning Group (NJHPG) is a collaborative formed and maintained by the New Jersey Department of Health, Division of HIV, STD, and TB Services (DHSTS) that combines HIV Care and Treatment with HIV Prevention Planning efforts.

HIV Planning is a critical process where we work in partnership with the community and key stakeholders to enhance HIV prevention, care, and treatment services in New Jersey.

Integrated Planning Committee

The work of the Integrated Planning Committee is to support the development of a comprehensive, integrated plan that looks at HIV care and prevention services across the State in partnership with the other grantees on a 3-year cycle per guidance from CDC & HRSA. 

Review data gathered from other committees as well as the gap analysis completed by Data & Research Committee. The Committee’s task is to begin developing a plan that responds to findings from data and the gap analysis, making recommendations, and setting goals, objectives, and action steps to address the identified needs.

Priority Setting Committee

The Priority Setting Committee is responsible for understanding and accessing where services are now and where they need to be. The Committee considers: 

  • what is needed, what is missing, what is lacking, what is cutting edge, what is innovative

  • how we can fill in the gaps, and how to do this with a Statewide perspective

  • draw from quantitative and qualitative data from and other sources to understand what is needed.
