This article describes an analysis of optimal allocation of CDC and HRSA funding for HIV prevention services as well as RWHAP Part A and B expenditures on services for linkage to care, retention in care, and adherence to antiretroviral therapy. The resource allocation analysis was conducted for 52 health departments, which were stratified into five groups based on the size of their HIV-positive population. Results were similar across the five types of health departments, suggesting that the optimal allocation of CDC funds focuses on prevention and linkage to care for Men who have Sex with Men (MSM) and prevention services for partners of HIV-positive individuals.
