The San Francisco EMA HIV Community Planning Council consists of volunteers and government appointees from throughout San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin counties, and is mandated by the U.S. Congress to determine the size and demographics of the population of individuals with HIV disease in this three county area.

The council determines the needs of this population, establishes priority for services and allocates funds from Part A of Ryan White Programs. For 2009 the funding amounted to over 26 million dollars for the three county area. Ryan White Programs are administered by the Health Resources and Services Administration in the United States Department of Health and Human Services.
