About the Commission

The Washington, DC Regional Planning Commission on Health and HIV (COHAH) will serve as the new regional planning body for HIV prevention and care services in the federally defined Washington, DC Eligible Metropolitan Area (EMA) or “Region”. 

The Commission offers a new, exciting opportunity for community and government to work together to improve the health and well-being of persons living with HIV and support persons from getting HIV. 

With the advances and synergy in HIV prevention and care, the two former planning groups, the DC HIV Prevention Planning Group (HPPG) and the Metropolitan Washington Regional Ryan White Planning Council (RWPC) agreed to merge paving the way for an integrated prevention and care service planning body. They recognized that integrated planning would achieve a more coordinated, effective, regional response to the HIV continuum of services.
