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.

CPAG is currently creating the next 5-year Integrated Plan for New Mexico, expected to be completed in December 2022. Please join us via meetings, town halls and/or regional advisory groups (RAG) to share your input and inform the plan.

The following new Vision statement will be included in the new Integrated Plan.

New Mexico will be a place where 1) new HIV infections are prevented, 2) persons with HIV know their status and are retained in high quality care so they can achieve their full potential across their life span, and 3) barriers, stigma, discrimination and disparities are eliminated. This will achieve health equity and social justice for all persons and communities impacted by HIV regardless of race/ethnicity; sexual orientation; gender, gender identity, and gender expression; age; socio-economic circumstance; disability; language; immigration status; religion, spirituality and cultural tradition; and geographic locations including rural, frontier and tribal areas.

CPAG invites all persons affected by HIV to join in implementing and monitoring this ambitious plan.
