Mapping of HIV/STI behavioural surveillance in Europe


This report is an in-depth analysis of the current situation regarding behavioural surveillance programmes related to HIV and sexually transmitted infections (STI) in EU and EFTA countries. Surveillance is examined in the following populations: general population, youth, injecting drug users (IDU), men who have sex with men (MSM), people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA), sex workers, STI clinic clients, migrant and ethnic minorities. Resulting from the overall analysis, core indicators, common to all populations, are proposed. These relate to the number of sexual partners, use of a condom at last intercourse, having had an HIV test, having paid for sex, and HIV knowledge.
