NEEDS ASSESSMENT The Needs Assessment report is written every two years by the Planning Council Support Staff to provide information on the HIV service system in the Boston EMA. This document assists the Planning Council in making informed decisions related to the prioritization of Ryan White Part A service categories and the Ryan White Part A funding allocations process.
FUNDING STREAMS The Funding Streams report is written every year by the Planning Council Support Staff to provide an overview of the funding available to provide HIV/AIDS services within the Boston EMA. The conclusions and recommendations from this report are used by members of the Planning Council to set Part A service definitions and make funding decisions within the Planning Council cycle.
COMPREHENSIVE PLAN The Comprehensive Plan guide is written every three years by the Planning Council Support Staff, and the Grantee as a framework to guide the Planning Council through the next three years of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Specifically, it reviews what our current system of care encompasses, what the future needs of the system are as the epidemic evolves in the EMA, what the goals are to advance the health system of care to provide optimal care for PLWH, and how the process will be monitored to improve the quality and efficiency of both the service delivery system and the planning process.
