We boldly dare to stop all new HIV infections while improving the quality of life for those living with HIV disease.
THE PLANNING COUNCIL The Oakland Transitional Grant Area Planning Council (OTGA) is an HIV-focused planning group (made up of community members, county officials, agencies who serve the HIV community, and people living with HIV/AIDS) appointed by the Alameda County Health Department, that decides how federal Ryan White funds should be spent in the Oakland Transitional Grant Area (TGA).

Please check the calendar for the most up to date schedule and meeting location.
