Toolbox for conducting integrated HIV bio-behavioral surveillance (IBBS) in key populations

Home
Improving health and reducing inequities worldwide

This toolbox is for governments, nongovernmental organizations, and private researchers who wish to implement IBBS surveys for key populations at higher risk for HIV infection. The toolbox features two methods

  • Time location sampling (TLS)
  • Respondent driven sampling (RDS)

These methods focus on three key populations at higher risk for HIV infection

  • Female sex workers (FSW)
  • Men who have sex with men (MSM)
  • Persons who inject drugs (PWID)

However, these tools are easily modifiable for other sampling designs as appropriate. This tool box is complete with everything you would need to implement a survey. These documents are based on our years of experience implementing IBBS all over the world, including San Francisco, CA, USA; eight countries in Africa; Brazil; China and the Caribbean.
