This new report from the Office of HIV Planning accounts for things like incarceration and racism

The care and prevention plan mixes community-identified needs with federal goals and local priorities. Pretty cool, right?

Not your typical government HIV Planning document.

Government documents, right? Ugh. So mundane and clerical and gross.

Not this one.

The Office of HIV Planning (OHP), in coordination with the Philadelphia Department of Public Health (PDPH), just put out its five-year care and prevention plan, and it’s got some really interesting stuff in it, taking into account institutional racism, the invisibility of trans populations due to poor data, syringe access and mass incarceration.

It’s a meaty document, but it’s chock full of relevant data points that you might not see in your typical government HIV care and prevention plan — data points that can be useful and relevant for anyone working in the social service sector.

That’s because needs have been identified by the community the office serves, according to OHP health planner and website coordinator Briana Morgan.

Morgan said OHP worked with PDPH (specifically the AIDS Activities Coordinating Office) and two of her office’s community planning bodies over the past year to come up with the care and prevention plan for 2017 to 2021. Since the plan will determine federal funding, it blends community-identified needs with PDPH priorities and the National HIV/AIDS Strategy goals.

We think it’s pretty cool.
