Scope :
The Seattle-King County Department of Public Health responded to the outbreak of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) in the United States in the early 1980s by establishing various clinical, outreach and educational programs. Principal among these, from 1986 to 2010, was the AIDS Prevention Program, afterwards known as the AIDS Prevention Unit and then the HIV/AIDS Program. During its entire history the medical director for the program was Dr. Robert Wood, a nationally recognized authority in lesbian and gay health care and in HIV/AIDS prevention. The records in this series were kept and maintained by Dr. Wood. They comprise a collection of a small number of correspondence files (1998-2002) and administrative files (1986-2001), followed by a larger group of subject files (1982-2007). The files document Dr. Wood's administrative duties; his professional activities (presentations, consultations, field visits, conferences, policy summits, meetings of principal investigators for the Community Demonstration Projects grant program funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention); and topics of professional and policy interest to him (including condom use, HIV prevention, HIV testing, investigative techniques and protocols, litigation [Baldetta v. Harborview Medical Center], public policies concerning HIV and AIDS, and safer sexual practices). Record types include letters and memoranda, handwritten notes, reports and studies, statistical analyses, brochures and pamphlets collected by Dr. Wood, and other textual materials. Correspondence and administrative files are arranged separately by date; they are followed by subject files in alphabetical order.
