Welcome to New Mexico’s HIV Community Planning and Action Group (CPAG)!
CPAG was founded in 1995 to ensure that the voices and expertise of the diverse communities impacted by HIV were included in planning. It has worked for over 20 years to ensure that New Mexico has excellent HIV prevention services.
In 2015, CPAG expanded its mission to conduct planning for all activities related to HIV – including HIV medical treatment, support services and other care for persons living with HIV. CPAG worked during 2015 and 2016 to create New Mexico's first Integrated Plan for HIV Prevention and Care. This five-year plan describes work to improve HIV outcomes during 2017-2021.
The Integrated Plan highlights the new mission statement adopted by the CPAG:
New Mexico will create a future where 1) new HIV infections are rare, 2) all persons with HIV know their status and are retained in high quality care that improves their health outcomes, and 3) barriers, stigma, discrimination and disparities based on race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, age, socio-economic circumstance, language and immigration status are eliminated.
CPAG invites all persons affected by HIV to join in implementing and monitoring this ambitious plan.
