Publications - Released in 2017

This report provides biological and behavioural information related to HIV infection among four key populations:

  • People who inject drugs (PWID)
  • Men who have sex with men (MSM)
  • Transgender populations
  • and Female Sex Workers (FSWs)

Data were collected in 23 sites including Punjab, 6 in Sind and 2 each in Baluchistan and KPK. The mapping data provided sampling frames, and diverse sampling techniques were used to draw representative samples of the key populations from these selected cities. Behavioral data were gathered from these population samples using a structured questionnaire covering socio-demographic information and risk behavior indicators identified from the literature on HIV.
