HIV Bio-behavioral Risk Study Implementation in Resource-poor Military Settings

Description: 

Circumstances within the military environment may place military personnel at increased risk of contracting sexually transmitted infections (STI) including HIV. HIV bio-behavioral risk studies provide a critical source of data to estimate HIV/STI prevalence and identify risk factors, allowing programs to maximize impact by focusing on the drivers of the epidemic. 

Objective

We present lessons learned from over a decade of HIV bio- behavioral risk study implementation and capacity-building in African militaries.
