Publications - Released in 2013

Size estimation of Most-At-Risk Populations is a precursor to effective HIV prevention interventions and epidemic projections in any country. A national study was conducted by the National STI and AIDS Control Program (NSACP), Ministry of Health, Sri Lanka through a consortium of management and technical partners including the Family Planning Association (FPA) of Sri Lanka; University of Manitoba (UoM), Canada; Alcohol and Drug Information Center (ADIC), Sri Lanka. The financial assistance for the study was provided by the Global Fund.

The overall goal of the size estimation was to provide accurate information on the size and locations of most-at-risk populations for HIV in Sri Lanka, with a view to helping to improve the scale, quality and impact of HIV prevention programmes among these populations.
