HIV disease demands a multidisciplinary approach, from the basic, medical, and behavioral sciences, to inform research and practice. This article suggests several opportunities for behavioral science involvement and points out some novel research and clinical experiences that psychologists have faced. The authors also discuss health service delivery programming and evaluation, areas particularly requiring input and expertise of community psychologists.
