Consumer Advisory Board (CAB)

Consumers are essential partners in the development and provision of services to individuals living with HIV/AIDS and are directly considered in the development and implementation of CID programs and services.

Since the spring of 2002, CID has maintained its own Consumer Advisory Board (CAB) to represent People Living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) who receive their care at BMC. The CID CAB, comprised of 13 patients, meets monthly to inform, advise, and assist with the design and implementation of service programs. The CAB members serve as liaisons between the large patient population and BMC administration, sharing their opinions and expertise about matters affecting BMC’s CID such as; decisions related to service provision, program design and implementation. The CAB’s diverse membership reflects the profile of the patients who receive their care at BMC, and therefore represents those individuals who are disproportionately affected by HIV infection.
