Welcome to New Mexico's Community Planning and Action Group (CPAG)!
The Integrated Plan for HIV Prevention and Care highlights the new mission statement adopted by 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 is made up of 30 decision-making members. This membership is intended to reflect the demographics of New Mexico's current population who are living with HIV. It is not necessary to become a decision-making member in order for your participation to be openly welcomed and contributions valued. Currently many people who are not decision making members participate in CPAG meetings regularly, offering input and their unique perspectives. Everyone is welcome to attend as often as they can!
We meet monthly in Albuquerque for a statewide meeting. CPAG has regional advisory groups (RAG) representing the Northwest, Northeast, Albuquerque metropolitan, Southwest and Southeast areas, plus a special group called "Region 7" that seeks input from American Indian tribes and naions. These groups set their own meeting schedules, on average about once a quarter. These groups allow people who are unable to attend the statewide meetings to hear what we are working on and give their input, as well as providing a way for regions to let the statewide group know of local concerns. RAG’s are open to everyone, regardless if they are able to attend the statewide meetings.
We welcome anyone to join our meetings and consider decision-making membership. For more information on who we are, what we do and for membership requirements, please e-mail us directly.
