California’s Coordination of AIDS Services

Report #104, May 1990

OVERVIEW

While the State has commited substantial resources to dealing with AIDS (more than $128 million in 1989-90), there is no coordinated effort to maximize the effect of those dollars. In addition, the lack of firm leadership, commitment and sense of direction at the State level has meant that the State’s steps toward coordination have been tentative, halting and, in general, unsuccessful. This report on AIDS services contains four findings and four recommendations to make the Office of AIDS more effective.
