COMMISSION ON HIV

Welcome to the Los Angeles County Commission on HIV website. We’re delighted that you have taken some time to find out more about the Commission, its activities, and, most importantly, about the services that Los Angeles County provides for people living with and at risk for HIV/AIDS.

The Commission reflects the thoughts, views and actions of approximately 50 dedicated individuals who represent different Los Angeles County communities, people with HIV, providers serving them, public health interests and other perspectives impacted by this devastating epidemic. Because it is the primary community advisory mechanism on HIV-related matters to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, Commissioners are appointed by the Board and originate from all sectors, geographies and populations of the County.

The Commission fulfills its responsibilities in the most accessible and accountable fashion possible. Commission members and staff are committed to intense deliberations, hard work, respectful dialogue, due diligence, transparency, honesty, openness and thorough representation and involvement of and by varied community concerns. Those values, we believe, will yield the best decisions in the interests of PLWH/A, and the community stakeholders who serve them.

We invite you to review and explore the website and Commission materials further, and to contact us if you have any questions or to get further involved.
