Marin HIV/AIDS Care Council

Image of red ribbon.The Marin HIV/AIDS Care Council is a community advisory board comprised of individuals who represent different aspects of the HIV epidemic in Marin County. This includes consumers of Ryan White-funded Services, as well as people representing underserved and affected populations, government agencies, and service providers.

What We Do:

The Marin County Department of Health and Human Services and the Marin HIV/AIDS Care Council work together to allocate HIV/AIDS funding in Marin. The Council is responsible for rank-ordering or ‘prioritizing’ service categories and then deciding on how much money each category should receive for the fiscal year. These categories include: Primary Care, Case Management, Mental Health, Home-based Care, Substance Abuse Services, Benefits Counseling, Food, Direct Emergency Financial Assistance, and others. 

Membership:

The Marin HIV/AIDS CARE Council would like to expand its membership with people from historically underserved populations such as youth, women, transgender, and communities of color. Your voice, as well as your commitment and contribution of time, is important to the success of this Council and the quality of services PLWHA (People Living With HIV/AIDS) receive here in Marin County. All are encouraged to apply, especially consumers of Ryan White Funded Services and service providers. Our meetings are open to the public and take place on the 2nd Wednesday of every other month from 3:00 - 5:00 PM. Contact Kevin Lee, klee@marincounty.org, 415-473-3037 to confirm the meeting and check the location. Check above on this web page for agendas.
