immage

This is the first round IBBS survey among MSM/TG conducted in eight districts of Terai Highway in Nepal and field work conducted by National Institute for Development and Research (NIDR). The eight districts namely Jhapa, Morang, Sunsari (Eastern Terai), Nawalparasi, Rupandehi, Kapilbastu (Western Terai), Kailali and Kanchanpur (Far-western Terai) were purposively selected on the basis of previous round of size estimation, consultation with relevant stakeholders during the formative assessment. The main objectives of the IBBS surveys were: to determine the prevalence and trend of HIV Syphilis, Chlamydia Trachomatis (CT) and Neisseria Gonorrhoea (NG) and associated risk behaviors among MSM/TG, collect information related to socio-demographic characteristics and explore the association between the risk behaviors and HIV and other specific STIs among the MSM/TG population.

Integrated Biological and Behavioral Survey among Transgender Women in Cambodia, 2016. Mun P, Tuot S, Chhim S, Chhoun P, Ly C, Pal K, Ngin C, and Yi S. (2016)

immage

While the overall prevalence of new HIV infections and mortality rate among people living with HIV (PLHIV) continue to decline in Cambodia, risky sexual behaviors and subsequent new HIV infections among transgender (TG) women continue to be of great concerns. To reduce HIV prevalence among TG women, it is crucial to track the changes in prevalence, risk behaviors, and factors associated with HIV infection to devise more responsive and tailor-made interventions. This Integrated Biological and Behavioral Survey (TG-IBBS 2016) investigates the current HIV prevalence, risky sexual behaviors, and factors associated with HIV infection among TG women in Cambodia. Where allowable, the results of this study are compared with those of the first one conducted in 2012. This study provides further evidence to confirm whether Cambodia is on track towards meeting the goals in the fight against HIV and whether the country’s “3.0” (Three Zeros) goal will be realized by 2020.
