PhDAuthor Information Professor in the Department of Behavioral Science and Health Education, Rollins School of Public Health, Center for AIDS Research, Emory University, in Atlanta, Georgia. Journal of Public Health Management and Practice: November 2002 - Volume 8 - Issue 6 - p 24-29 Buy Abstract This article presents a brief, logical framework that can be used in conducting a review of the comprehensiveness of any governmental human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prevention program at the local, state, or national level. The framework, presented as a checklist of questions, could be used by external evaluators of an HIV prevention program, used internally for continuous quality improvement, or a combination of the two. The checklist can be used to select components of HIV prevention programs in need of particular, critical improvements. © 2002 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
