evaluation, HIV prevention, policy



  1. Holtgrave, David R. PhD


In January 2001, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a national HIV prevention strategic plan with the overarching goal of reducing new HIV infections in the United States from 40,000 to 20,000 per year by 2005, with a particular emphasis on eliminating the racial/ethnic disparities in new infections. In this article, a framework is proposed for tracking progress toward achievement of the goal. Information available to date suggests there apparently has been little progress in achieving the national goal and sparse expansion of resources needed to achieve the goal.
