Abstract

Discusses factors emerging from research into the management andorganizational processes involved in developing services for HIVAIDSwhich affected the speed and character of the response made by healthauthorities. An early response was promoted by perceived high localprevalence, an existing service infrastructure, and high statusindividuals championing the issue and helping to foster amobilizing sense of crisis. Responses were shaped by the diverseinterests and perspectives of those developing services the lack ofestablished guidelines for treatment and service delivery, andringfenced funding. The idiosyncratic nature of initial servicedevelopment has sometimes made later strategic choices difficult. If themomentum of service development is to be sustained, HIVAIDS needs to beintegrated into mainstream service provision and managers need improvedinformation about local prevalence and evaluation of serviceinitiatives.
