Planning Council Support Office

The purpose of the Planning Council (PC) in the Saint Louis University College of Public Health and Social Justice is to plan for and design the present and future system of care for persons with HIV in a way that is comprehensive, culturally sensitive, and reflective of the metropolitan St. Louis HIV Transitional Grant Area (TGA) community. SLU's PC collaborates with persons and agencies providing other resources to identify and address needs, and to ensure quality, efficiency, effectiveness and continuity of care.

Planning Council members:

  • Participate in monthly Planning Council meetings.
  • Bring experience and knowledge regarding the needs of people and communities affected by HIV/AIDS to Planning Council discussions.
  • Are assigned to at least one additional committee based on need, interests and experience.
The mission of the PC is to collaborate with community stakeholders to achieve a coordinated data-driven response to HIV/AIDS Prevention and Care Services to reduce new infections, increase access to care, improve health outcomes, and reduce health disparities in the St. Louis Metropolitan Region.


The PC is committed to eliminating new infections and improving the health and well-being of persons impacted by HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted infections, viral hepatitis and related health concerns.

Core Values

The core values of the PC are stewardship of resources, respect for human dignity, integrity, leadership, parity, inclusion, representation and engagement.

St. Louis Transitional Grant Area

Map showing counties in greater St. Louis region and the St. Louis Transitional Grant Area (TGA). Red counties: Lincoln, Warren, St. Charles, Franklin, St. Louis, St. Louis City and Jefferson represent the Missouri TGA and the Missouri HIV prevention area. Blue counties: Jersey, Madison, St. Claire, Clinton and Monroe represent Illinois counties of TGA in HIV prevention region. Green counties: Macoupin, Bond, Fayette, Marion, Washington and Randolph represent Illinois counties of HIV prevention region not in the TGA.

The St. Louis Region receives Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) federal funding to provide services to people living with HIV/AIDS in seven counties in Missouri and five counties in Illinois. The map above outlines the counties that our region covers. To determine how much funding each service gets, federal legislation requires a community planning body to use a data-based approach to allocate funding to the services needed most and identified by people living with HIV/AIDS. The City of St. Louis then receives funds directly from HRSA and contracts out funded services to organizations and health centers in the region.
