A core value of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program is engagement of consumers in all facets of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program. Consumers:
- Serve as members and leaders of planning bodies.
- Participate in consumer advisory boards to provide feedback to clinics on services and their design.
- Reach out as peers to other persons living with HIV/AIDS to engage and retain them in care.
- Serve as volunteers and paid staff members in HIV/AIDS care agencies.
Help with setting up a CAB that works for members and for clinics.
