USCM was one of the first national organizations to respond to the AIDS epidemic. At the urging of former San Francisco mayor Dianne Feinstein, in 1984 USCM established an HIV/AIDS Program and developed a HIV/AIDS Prevention Grants Program with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Now in its twentieth year, the USCM-CDC collaborative program consists of three primary components in the form of the Prevention Grants Program, Prevention Publications and Technical Assistance, each of which is outlined below.
