African American Community Health Equity Council
The African American Community Health Equity Council (AACHEC) is an independent community body in collaboration with the San Francisco Department of Public Health's African American Health Initiative. The mission of the Council is to be a powerful advocate for health in San Francisco and to close the gap of negative health disparities affecting people of African descent by gathering and sharing health information and resources that promote effective health policies, community action and well being.
African American Health Leadership Group
The African American Health Leadership Group is comprised of executive directors and senior health administrators charged with assessing the health status of African Americans in San Francisco and developing a health plan and response to those disparities.

The mission of the Communities Advocating Emergency AIDS Relief (CAEAR) Coalition is to advance effective care and support for people living with HIV and AIDS by providing training, technical assistance and research to organizations and communities.
The HIV Prevention Planning Council (HPPC) is the group that guides HIV prevention in San Francisco, along with the San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH). The membership of HPPC is comprised of representatives from local communities and government and reflects San Francisco’s diverse population.
The HPPC is responsible for deciding which populations are in greatest need of HIV prevention services, as well as deciding the best ways to meet those needs. The SFDPH, in turn, is responsible for funding programs and services that match the HPPC's decisions.
The HPPC works closely with the HIV Services Planning Council (CARE Council), which is responsible for overseeing the prioritization and allocation of Ryan White CARE Act Title I and II funds for San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin counties.
