HIV behavioural surveillance among at risk target populations is an essential tool in measuring HIV behavioural risk factors and providing information of the effectiveness of programmes and interventions in preventing HIV infection. To better understand HIV risk in the male clients of female sex workers (MCFSW) population, it was included as one of the four major at-risk populations in the HIV/AIDS Response Indicator Survey (HARiS) implemented since 2013. The first survey was conducted in 2013, via commissioning to the Stanley Ho Centre for Emerging Infectious Disease, School of Public Health and Primary Care of the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control: an Experience of the Royal Thai Army in Thailand. UNAIDS (2004)

HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control: an Experience of the Royal Thai Army in Thailand. UNAIDS (2004) Thailand was one of the most severely affected countries during the early stage of the AIDS pandemic. However, the country openly addressed the problem and implemented strict and continuous preventive measures. These measures have been well recognized for their effectiveness in reducing the cumulative number of HIV infections from the previously estimated number of 6-8 million infected by the year 2000 to a more recent computerized projection of 1 million infected people. The number of new infections is estimated to be around 25,000 per year-down from the estimated annual figure of over 100,000 persons. The success of Thailandûs HIV-prevention-and-control campaigns has been internationally acknowledged.

Peer Education Kit for Uniformed Services. UNAIDS (2003)

Peer Education Kit for Uniformed Services. UNAIDS (2003) There is a critical need to find effective ways to lower the risk-taking behaviour that leads to infection with HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in uniformed services populations (i.e. military, peacekeepers, police). Behaviour change, based on acquiring knowledge and learning skills, along with individual risk assessment, is an effective method for reducing risk-taking behaviour and encouraging uniformed services personnel to become advocates in the fight against HIV/AIDS/STIs.

Strong Fighting: Sexual Behavior and HIV/AIDS in the Cambodian Uniformed Services. FHI and USAID (2002)

Strong Fighting: Sexual Behavior and HIV/AIDS in the Cambodian Uniformed Services. FHI and USAID (2002) The idea for this paper arose from discussions at FHI/IMPACT Cambodia. The feeling was that something was missing in the body of published work about high-risk sexual behavior among sentinel groups in Cambodia. We felt that the information that was available, the HIV Sentinel Surveillance (HSS), Behavioral Surveillance Survey (BSS) and a variety of smaller scale survey reports were either purely quantitative, had limited analysis or lacked a proper context for the information.
