PLACE: Priorities for Local AIDS Control Efforts [CD-ROM]
Author(s): Weir SS, Tate J, Hileman SB, Khan M, Jackson E, Johnston A, Herman C
This CD-ROM includes a manual for the Priorities for Local AIDS Control Efforts (PLACE) Method, specific PLACE studies and journal articles, and related materials. Using a venue-based approach, the PLACE method lays out a step-by-step process for monitoring AIDS prevention among most-at-risk populations. The manual provides readers with an in-depth guide for using this method, which is designed for implementation within a short period of time by local personnel equipped with a word-processing program and freely available data entry, analysis, and mapping programs such as Epi-Info. The method includes participatory feedback workshops to ensure that results are used to tailor local interventions.
