Topic: Consumer Involvement

Consumers (persons living with HIV/AIDS and their families) are involved in multiple Ryan White activities. Consumer involvement in planning councils and other planning bodies is to ensure that affected communities are involved in determining needs and how best to address them. Consumer participation in Consumer Advisory Boards (CABs) is to ensure that clinics hear from and involve patients in care design and delivery.
