  Annotation: This report presents recommendations for preventing and treating AIDS in California from 1987 through 1991, based on analyses conducted by an advisory body created in 1986 at the request of the director of the California Department of Health Services.
Abstract: The group examined the recommendations of the United States Surgeon General and others and received advice from 130 Federal, State, local, corporate, foundation, religious, and community experts on AIDS. The group recommends that the legislature and governor immediately call for a meeting of all possible funding sources. They should also set aside partisan and political considerations and declare a state of emergency to set aside normal budget limits and fund the needed efforts. Additional efforts should focus on expanding long-term strategic planning, preventing a health insurance crisis, increasing funding for clinical drug trials, expanding public health education and risk reduction programs, improving treatment, initiating effective case management, and conducting case monitoring and seroprevalence studies. Tables, figures, and appended charts and related materials.
