Here's the Fall 2018 issue of the Illinois #HIV Integrated Planning Council’s (IHIPC) Quarterly Newsletter! We encourage you to share it with your colleagues. http://ow.ly/RFy830lNpIq


The editors are always looking to include news and articles from community members in the newsletter. Starting with the Winter issue, they will begin dedicating one page of the newsletter to “Best Practices in HIV Prevention and Care”. This will be a space for community stakeholders to share how interventions are working at their organizations and to possibly inspire others to adopt new, effective practices.


If you would like to submit an article, information, or best practice ideas for consideration in the Winter 2018 newsletter, please submit them by November 16th. See the newsletter for contact information.
