Under what conditions do bureaucratic agencies play advocacy role in policy? How do leaders and strategies change as an advocacy agency evolves? These issues are addressed through a case history of the New York State AIDS institute, which was established in 1983 and has led the state's drive against AIDS. The AIDS Institute has evolved organizationally as the face of the epidemic has changed and as its political and budgetary environment has changed. The AIDS Institute is an example of a generic entity in public administration-an agency created to advocate attention to, and solutions for, a particular public policy dilemma.
