Public health departments have been criticized for not being on the cutting edge of health policy formation in the United States and, in particular, for being ineffective in dealing with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).
This study examines the attitudes and influence of public health officials on this problem.
A survey of state health department officials was supplemented by surveys of state legislature health committee chairs and hospital association directors, as well as by interviews with key AIDS policymakers and observers in six states.
