This collection contains the materials collected by the AIDS Resource Program of UCSF's Institute for Health Policy Studies
to use as reference materials to meet their goal of providing information and education on the San Francisco Model of HIV/AIDS
services and to assist in their analysis of other HIV/AIDS health and social services policies and programs. A large majority
of the material in the collection consists of newspaper clippings, magazine and scholarly articles, government publications,
grant information. Correspondence, handwritten notes, drafts, and other original materials are scattered throughout the collection.
Institute of Health Policy Studies
The Institute of Health Policy Studies was founded by University of California, San Francisco professor of social medicine
and former University Chancellor, Philip R. Lee, M.D., in 1972. It was established as the Health Policy Program with support
from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the University of California. In 1977 the Institute was awarded a five-year
grant from the National Center for Health Services Research, Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, as the only national
Health Services Policy Analysis Center. In February 1981 the University of California Board of Regents designated the Institute
as a UCSF campus-wide organized research unit within the University. As of 1985 the Institute's budget was over $3.5 million
and has received grants and contracts from over 30 public and private funding agencies for the support of research, teaching,
technical assistance, and dissemination activities. The institute expanded from a small group of faculty members focused
on federal health policy to a diverse group of faculty, fellows, and professional research staff who represent a broad range
of clinical and social science disciplines and methods. In 2005 IHPS faculty have appointments in all four schools at UCSF
(medicine, pharmacy, nursing, and dentistry). The primary goals of the IHPS are: to conduct policy-oriented research and
analysis on a wide range of health issues; to apply research findings to health policy issues at the national, state, and
local levels; and to provide education and training opportunities in health policy and health services research.
