Members Sought for the Texas HIV Medication Advisory Committee

Last updated on 1/13/2021

If you’re interested in Texas HIV Medication issues, you may want to apply to be a member of the Texas HIV Medication Advisory Committee. The Texas Health and Human Services Commission executive commissioner will appoint members to the committee to serve a term expiring December 31, 2026. Applications are due by 11:59 p.m., January 31.

HHSC will consider applicants' qualifications, background and interest in serving on the committee and will try to choose committee members who represent the diversity of all Texans. For this reason, HHSC considers applicants' ethnicity, gender and geographic location.

It is preferred that you submit your application electronically, but you may submit the application by email, mail, or fax. Here are the addresses:

Email: HHS_Appointments@hhsc.state.tx.us
Attn: HIV MAC

Mail:
Texas Health and Human Services Commission
4900 N. Lamar Blvd.
Mail Code 0223

A Texas HIV Medication Advisory Committee member must regularly participate in committee meetings and may also have to participate in subcommittee meetings, projects and presentations. Committee meetings are held about once every three months in Austin or at the call of the presiding officer. Due to travel restrictions from COVID-19, committee meetings are currently being held virtually, but we expect to resume in-person meetings once travel restrictions are lifted and it is deemed safe to do so. To the extent permitted by the current state budget, a committee member who receives services from HHSC or is a family member of a client may be repaid for their travel expenses to and from meetings if money is available and in accordance with the HHSC Travel Policy. Other committee members aren’t paid to attend or travel to and from committee meetings.

For more information about the committee visit the committee website or contact Betsy Cohn.
