To improve human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prevention efforts nationwide, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has funded HIV Prevention Community Planning, an initiative that promotes parity, representativeness, and inclusion of community and the application of scientific principles for decision making.
This initiative was welcomed enthusiastically in New York City, an AIDS epicenter with limited prevention ressources.
In the first year of implementation, the New York city Department of Health (NYCDOH) supported a comprehensive evaluation of the planning initiative.
This article reviews the evaluation design, including its process and outcome components, the study findings, and its strengths and limitations.
It provides overall guidance for those who are assessing prevention planning in HIV as well as other health areas.
