|Abstract:||Second generation HIV surveillance aims to improve collection, analysis and use of data essential to AIDS and HIV control programmes for better monitoring the epidemic and for guiding the response to it. In countries with low level or concentrated HIV epidemics, such as those in many eastern European countries, surveillance of population groups at increased risk of HIV infection is emphasized. Surveillance and monitoring should cover both biomedical and social/behavioural factors. Problems of accessibility and in obtaining the participation of high-risk hard-to-reach groups in sentinel biological and behavioural surveys is a key concern of second generation surveillance. This report covers discussion of the experience of Baltic States and central European countries in conducting HIV surveillance, in particular the various approaches, methodologies and techniques used in second generation surveillance|
