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.
In honor of World AIDS Day and the tremendous commitment and hard work of our collaborators, we recognize the organizations who have signed on to support East Bay Getting to Zero’s collective movement towards zero new HIV transmissions.
We had around 400 community members come to spin our question/prize wheel, take Getting-to-Zero selfies, and chat about HIV prevention and treatment at Oakland Pride on Sunday, September 9, 2019. Many thanks to all our awesome volunteers and supporters!
