The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) epidemic has placed enormous strains on health care and social services delivery.
The authors studied the response to the epidemic by a local health jurisdiction in an area of moderate incidence.
The area recorded about 1, 000 cumulative cases of acquired immunodeficiency virus syndrome, and the estimated prevalence of HIV infection was 10,000 as of 1991.
The local health jurisdiction combined methods in a community-wide planning process for HIV services.
The process mobilized the existing community-based network of service providers to identify problem areas and to develop recommendations for action.
