Abstract
Many AIDS education and training programs have developed techniques to better target and recruit providers most in need of training. Given the infusion of federal and state resources invested in training of the providers in recent years, whether the delivery of training activities are closely aligned with high minority AIDS prevalence geographic areas remains unknown. This present study discusses an informatics system to identify the relationships between AIDS intervention programs and geographic areas of minority populations adversely affected by HIV/AIDS to help determine whether resources are being expended appropriately (as evidenced by the alignment of training activities) in areas where there is the highest AIDS prevalence.
