All materials (videos, pamphlets, brochures) that are used or distributed by organizations funded by the Houston Health Department to provide prevention education and counseling in Houston, Texas must be submitted for approval through a review panel. This panel comprises community members and is coordinated by the city of Houston Bureau of HIV/STD & Viral Hepatitis Prevention Program.
HIV Program Review Panel
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requires that educational literature and other HIV/AIDS materials produced with CDC funding be submitted to a Program Review Panel. To comply with this mandate, Houston Health Department (HHD) Bureau of HIV, STD, and Viral Hepatitis Prevention requires organizations receiving HHD allocated CDC funding to submit literature and other materials (audiovisual, web content) to the HHD Program Review Panel (PRP) for review. The HHD additionally requires that literature and materials produced with other bureau allocated funding be reviewed by the HHD Program Review Panel.
