Recommendation Discussed in This Chapter
Recommendation 4-1: The U.S. Global AIDS Initiative should enhance and intensify HIV prevention through a planning process that links timely national information on the epidemic to the selection of the most appropriate intervention packages and to the optimal targeting of interventions to populations in whom infections are most likely to occur. The U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator should enhance current data on HIV prevalence by supporting quality behavioral surveys to identify patterns of risk. The Coordinator should support country plans to identify where infections are to be averted to achieve prevention targets and should track progress toward achieving prevention goals by measuring risk behaviors, the prevalence and incidence of other sexually transmitted infections, and ultimately the prevalence and incidence of HIV.
