With the history of the U.S. federal budget for fiscal year 1986 as a vehicle, the usual processes in the executive branch and the Congress that establish health research priorities and the unusual developments that have shaped priorities for AIDS are described. In the 3 years between the initial formulation of the AIDS budget and its execution, there were numerous revisions and evidence of poor communication between scientists and policy makers. On the basis of this analysis, two recommendations are made: the director of the National Institutes of Health and the heads of other U.S. Public Health Service agencies should have discretionary funds to use for AIDS activities; and better channels of communication between the Congress, the Public Health Service, and outside biomedical researchers should be established for consultation on priorities for AIDS research.
