This is a manual of group interview techniques used to assess the needs of people living with AIDS. It discusses the advantages of group rather than individual interview techniques. Some of the advantages are: they are relatively inexpensive; they are faster; and can include a more varied range of personnel. This manual is written primarily for personnel at the district level who manage AIDS prevention and care programmes. It focuses on gathering information about the content and quality of care that people with AIDS receive. This might include evaluating needs for discharge planning, home health care, or in-service training for palliative care or counselling. This manual is designed to show how group interview techniques may assist in planning and managing programmes.
