Because resources for HIV prevention programs are extremely limited, there is an urgent need to focus interventions where they are most cost effective. To prevent new infections in a cost effective way, AIDS prevention programs should focus on areas likely to have a higher incidence of infection. The Priorities for Local AIDS Control Efforts (PLACE) method is a monitoring tool to identify areas likely to have a higher incidence of infection. Within these areas, PLACE identifies specifi c venues where AIDS prevention programs should be focused to reach those most at risk of acquiring and transmitting HIV, provides indicators that monitor HIV/AIDS prevention program coverage, and identifies gaps in prevention programs. In previous studies that used the PLACE meth odology, the study results effectively mobilized local populations to make progress in addressing gaps in prevention programs.
