HIV surveillance training modules: Module 6: surveillance of populations at high risk for HIV transmission : module 6 - participant manual
AbstractModule 6 introduces HIV surveillance among high-risk populations. Eight high-risk populations are described in-depth with recommended surveillance techniques. Detailed case studies are provided for each population to help participants think through implementation. After completing this course, participants should: be able to discuss the importance of surveillance in high-risk populations understand the purpose of pre-surveillance assessments and the role of qualitative and quantitative research in these assessments be able to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of various sampling approaches be able to discuss how to choose the most effective biological and behavioural measures in surveys of high-risk groups understand the special ethical consideration of conducting behavioural and biological surveillance among high-risk groups. This course is meant primarily for state/national-level surveillance officers. This module can also be used for self-study. Module 5 is a prerequisite for this module.
