East Bay Getting to Zero’s organizational structure includes a core team (prevention director, program manager and program director), an advisory board, a community steering committee, a Poz+ advisory committee, and 6 collaborative working groups, which collectively support project implementation:
- Linkage network
- Prevention and testing network
- Grupo en Español
- Housing group
- Youth network
- Community messaging group
East Bay Getting to Zero is led by the voices of some of the region’s most experienced, knowledgeable, compassionate and motivated community partners, including people living with HIV, people most affected by HIV, and people who conduct HIV-related advocacy and service provision in community-based organizations, schools, and healthcare settings.
Funding for the community events, campaigns and materials, some working groups, steering committee, and some core team staff time is from the Levi Strauss Foundation, Viiv Positive Action, Gilead Foundation and Kaiser Community Benefits. Funding for some linkage and prevention working group activities, capacity building and provider core team staff is from the Bay Area AIDS Education and Training Center (BANCC AETC), Alameda County Public Health Department and Alameda County Health Care Services Agency. The funding and support is very much appreciated and critical for the existence of EBGTZ and movement towards collective goals.
