Needs Assessment for the Integrated HIV Prevention and Care Plan

California Department of Public Health

Project Years: 2022

To meet federal requirements of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), every 5 years the California Department of Public Health conducts a needs assessment to support data-driven decision-making about the content of California’s next Integrated HIV Surveillance, Prevention and Care Plan. In 2022, Facente Consulting was selected to lead the process to conduct the needs assessment for the 2023-2026 integrated plan.

In 2022, Facente Consulting will incorporate HIV surveillance data, design and implement a county level survey to gather data, review existing related California HIV/AIDS needs assessments, and conduct a review of State laws and regulations that serve as barriers to accessing existing HIV testing, prevention, care and treatment services. This information will be used to create key priorities and write the Needs Assessment section of the fina integrated plan, due to the federal government in December 2022.
