The Public Policy Workgroup works to produce a statewide policy platform that prioritizes changes in local, regional, and statewide policy and systems in order to address the needs of vulnerable communities and people living with HIV. The workgroup makes, and when possible, enacts recommendations and strategies to address needed policy and system changes.

The Public Policy Workgroup also works to develop a statewide network of engaged community members to participate in workgroup meetings and to enact strategies developed by the workgroup. The resources on this page include Texas HIV groups and coalitions.
