Abstract: Overview: It is said that the learning curve for HIV Community Planning is about eighteen months and the retention for Natives is at its all time low. Individuals that walk into this process find themselves treading in unfamiliar waters that can leave them feeling disconnected from the process. This experience can cause a person to question their involvement thus creating barriers towards effective participation. Much of the problem lies in not being equipped with the necessary tools or strategies such as; understanding the reason for the process and its structure, having knowledge of how the process works and knowing how to operate within the process so that you can advocate for your community and contribute towards positive and effective results that will benefit all people. In this section we will explore the history and the process of HIV Community Planning and an overview of the mechanisms that drive this process-for better terms, the nuts and bolts or guidelines that are laid out in the HIV Prevention Community Planning Guidance. Objective: By the end of this section the reader will: Have a general working knowledge of the history of CPG and how this relates to the process today. Have a better understanding of the goals and responsibilities of being a CPG member or a community member who can influence the outcomes of the process.
