Central Panhandle AIDS Network

CPAN, The Central Panhandle AIDS Network, is a planning body comprised of the various providers of services for persons living with HIV/AIDS, as well as services to those at risk of acquiring HIV, and consumers, i.e. persons living with HIV/AIDS. Currently, the group is chaired by Ms. Miranda Fernot and Ms. Sharron Joseph is a secretary.

CPAN meets quarterly on the third Tuesday of each month (January, April, July, October) at locations that rotate throughout the service area of CPAN. CPAN covers Bay, Calhoun, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, and Washington Counties. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the group has met virtually via Zoom.

The purpose of CPAN is to oversee planning for services to persons with HIV infection by prioritizing various types of services for funding allocation under the federal Ryan White Part B program. CPAN also prioritizes population at risk to be targeted with prevention services.
CPAN meetings are open to the public, and CPAN constantly encourages residents to become members of this planning body and participate in the decision making process.
