Region VIII has an Advisory Committee that was formed in 1992 to ensure the continuous implementation of the goals of the National IPP.
In accordance with the National IPP, project area representatives from Family Planning, STD and Laboratory have voting privileges within the Advisory Committee. The Advisory Committee meets once a year to address regional issues as well as regional progress regarding the IPP, including setting project priorities, establishing regional screening and treatment guidelines as well as bringing together surveillance and epidemiologic activities).
The Executive Committee provides the foundation for the RAC and the work groups by providing opportunities to discuss and problem solve priorities, as well as identify key partners to be invited to participate with the RAC to help move the Region VIII IPP priorities forward.
The committee has established work groups to implement its Regional Plan.
