ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study where the AIDS Activities Office (AAO) of Lehigh Valley Health Network, an HIV/AIDS hospital-based outpatient program, designed and implemented a program to provide culturally appropriate medical care to Hispanic American patients. The authors discuss the clinical microsystem approach and the potential impact on larger networks. The article reports how the AAO established community relationships which strengthened the HIV/AIDS services the clinic provided, and notes the recruitment of bilingual and bicultural staff members to the outpatient program.
