The specific aims of the center are to
- assist UCSF scientists in better defining HIV/AIDS policy questions and in using the formal tools of policy analysis to produce more useful science
- conduct policy analyses and specific research projects on HIV policy, including evaluating policy interventions
- identify decision-makers and communicate to them the results of policy-related research
