Annotation: This article describes the planning and implementation of the New Jersey Treatment Assessment Program (TAP) which provides early clinical intervention for persons infected with HIV. It examines in particular how TAP resolves issues of policy decisions regarding testing and counseling, patient monitoring, discrimination, confidentiality, legislation, service delivery, and reimbursement.
Abstract: Preexisting AIDS counseling, case management programs, and a well-regulated health care system in New Jersey allowed for quick implementation of TAP. Key elements of TAP include targeted education campaigns, early identification of seropositivity, expansion of clinical testing and assessment, organization of resources for prophylaxis and its management, case reporting, monitoring, and follow-up. Through an evaluation of this program, New Jersey hopes to quantify the needs for prophylactic services, their cost, and their consequences. However, the issues raised by this program will need to be resolved by merits rather than costs and will have far reaching implications for the future role of public health. 7 notes
