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 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.
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
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.
Community members interested in joining the Planning Council are encouraged to fill out a PC member application or PC non-member application forms.
