About Us

Your Voice Matters

Established in 1991, the Area 15 HIV/AIDS Comprehensive Planning Network (Area 15 CPN) acts as a local advisory body for people living with HIV (PLWH), affected community members, and providers in Indian River, Martin, Okeechobee, and St. Lucie counties (Area 15). Over the past 29 years, members have served and played a vital role in planning and building an accessible high-quality system of prevention and patient care for people living with, affected by and at risk for HIV/AIDS in Area 15.
