Abstract

A formative assessment was conducted with Texas HIV prevention community planning group (CPG) members, prevention provider staff, and supervisors of those staff to better understand how to enhance their use of epidemiologic and behavioral data in the selection and prioritization of prevention interventions. Semi-structured interviews, mail surveys, and content analysis of funding proposals were used to determine the current use of these data, their perceived value, and the most trusted sources for data. CPG members, prevention provider staff, and supervisors valued information from their peers and networking most, and made more use of socially available information than they did research or systematically collected assessment data. CPG members wanted more local data and data on specific sub-populations of interest. Prevention providers viewed the utility of behavioral data as limited, and were primarily concerned with the pragmatic aspects of fielding interventions; however, this group also expressed an interest in rapid community assessment methods and learning more about new and effective prevention interventions. These results led to the development of training and technical assistance materials.
