In Ghana, healthcare facilities that provide HIV/AIDS services do not facilitate provision of comprehensive support services such as HIV/AIDS case management, peer group support, medication adherence, and nutritional enhancement among others due to inadequate resources.

Eight themes in the HIV/AIDS case management process emerged from a 1998 study of 14 Ryan White Title I- funded case management programs in the New York City tri-county region.
HIV/AIDS case management therefore is offered through multiple models, by an array of auspices, in diverse settings, and through programs that vary considerably in the breadth and depth of their components.
This article presents the results of two studies that were part of a research project with HIV/AIDS case management programs in a tri-county region surrounding the New York City metropolitan area.
The main purpose of this project was to provide empirically based information and new insights about the HIV/AIDS case management process in the tri-county (Westchester, Rockland, and Putnam) region in New York State.
The results of this content analysis for each researcher were compared and combined for a picture of HIV/AIDS case management in the region, from the perspective of chart recordings.
In an attempt to be more inclusive of the region's case management programs and case managers than was possible with the chart reviews, all 14 of the existing HIV/AIDS case management programs were invited to send case managers and a program supervisor-director to one of several 2 1/2-hour group sessions.
Moreover, three outside "experts" with extensive HIV/AIDS case management experience examined the data and the results of the analysis.
