Description

The concepts and material presented in this publication were informed by size estimate workshops held in Bangkok, Thailand in July 2009 and Bucharest, Romania in October 2009.

Abstract

"Establishing the size of populations most at risk to HIV allows epidemiologists to develop models which estimate and project HIV prevalence or inform countries of the distribution of HIV incidence within their country... Use this guideline to conduct population size estimate studies to measure and understand the populations most at risk to HIV in your country... This document updates the 2003 publication with recently developed methods and techniques, including how to develop national estimates from local estimates. Country experience in using the methods is presented."
