Agency records suffer from the effects of several changes of administrators and office
managers; subsequent inconsistencies are evident in the creation, arrangement and
preservation of files. While some series are incomplete, they do possess research value.
The files have been arranged by function, then by chronology.
The AIDS Service Providers Association (ASPA) was a major conduit of

states that ASPA "promotes collaboration and coordination among AIDS service and
community-based organizations in the eleven-county San Francisco and Monterey Bay Areas,
and promotes advocacy on behalf of the AIDS service community".
Collection is open for research.
