The role of Community Steering Committee is to provide guidance and subject matter expertise for all operational components of the initiative. The EBGTZ Community Steering Committee brings together the East Bay’s most compassionate and motivated community members, which includes leadership representation from people living with HIV, Alameda County and Contra Costa County public health departments, Alameda Health Consortium, community-based organizations, schools, clinics, hospitals, churches, federally-qualified health centers, pharmacies, and research organizations.

EBGTZ steering committee members form the backbone of EBGTZ decision-making processes, serve on panels for community events and meetings, and provide close consultation and direction on program content, design and messaging. The steering committee membership is determined by community recommendations, a commitment to EBGTZ goals and attending bimonthly meetings.

East Bay HIV Strategic Plan

Updates on the East Bay HIV strategic plan are posted on this webpage. This is a community-driven “living” East Bay HIV strategic plan that is flexible and responsive to local needs, addresses structural inequities, and is used to make systemic change to achieve our vision of an East Bay with zero HIV stigma, zero health disparities, and zero new HIV transmissions.

Honoring Ms. Loren Jones

It is with a sad and heavy heart that we share that Ms. Loren Jones transitioned on June 4, 2021. Loren was a fierce and committed social justice leader in the East Bay HIV community. She was instrumental in building East Bay Getting to Zero as a founding advisory board and steering committee member and ensuring we were rooted in community. She inspired and guided many people in our network over the decades. She will remain beloved and will be dearly missed.
