The mission of the Nassau-Suffolk HIV Health Services Planning Council is to provide effective planning for the Nassau-Suffolk EMA and promote development of HIV/AIDS health services, personnel, and facilities which meet identified health needs in a cost effective manner, reduce inefficiencies, and address the needs of uninsured and underinsured HIV infected individuals.

‘“The fight against AIDS is important to me because I believe that all persons impacted by the disease of AIDS, or any disease for that matter, have the right to get well and live long productive lives. Those of us in the helping field make a commitment to do what we can to assist persons impacted by disease and being part of the fight against AIDS is one way in which I can help to do this.”
