Mission of the ND HIV Prevention and Care Advisory Board
The mission of the North Dakota HIV Prevention and Care Advisory Board (NDHPCAB) is to provide representative community feedback on the HIV-related programs, services, plans and events of the NDDoH. This board is intended to represent the vast communities impacted by HIV/AIDS in North Dakota, including but not limited to members who represent diverse ages, gender identities, races/ethnicities, sexual orientations, HIV status and experience or expertise. The board looks to:
- Advise the NDDoH on how the department can plan and implement services and interventions that address the HIV epidemic in and for all communities.
- Provide a community voice in decisions NDDoH makes about current and future services.
- Offer feedback on how well NDDoH works with members of the community in consideration of the needs of the jurisdiction.

Virtual Meeting Information: Microsoft Teams Meeting on Jan. 12 at 7:00 PM
This advisory board will meet virtually for 2-hours once a quarter. These meetings will be held through Microsoft Teams, and each session will allow time for updates, material review, and learning opportunities for NDHPCAB members. This time will also be used to react to ideas and plans from NDDoH staff and offer suggestions for improvement. Once members are chosen, the NDHPCAB will have plentiful opportunities to bring additional topics to discuss, build into committees, adjust the current structure, etc. We hope to create a NDHPCAB that is meaningful and rewarding and offer community members a meaningful way to engage with the NDDoH.
The following is a document highlighting the roles and responsibilities of the NDDoH, the Community Ambassador and Advisory Board Members.
