Publications - Released in 2012

The MoH HIV/STI unit conducted active surveillance for select STIs (syphilis, Chlamydia, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C) and HIV rapid testing in 5 districts of Timor-Leste: Covalima, Oecusse, Bobonaro, Dili, and Baucau. The HIV/STI unit also assessed the behavioral characteristics of specific high-risk target groups in those districts: female sex workers (FSW), males who have sex with other males (MSM), and uniformed personnel (UP). These data will help the HIV/STI program quantify HIV/STI prevalence in Timor-Leste and improve its programs.
