Description: 
Somalia lacks strategic information for an effective and evidence-based response to the HIV epidemic. Since no epidemiological study has been conducted in Somalia on HIV risk behaviours and populations at risk, little is known about the dynamics of transactional sex, and its implications on HIV vulnerability and infection status of populations at increased risk. This hot-spot mapping is the first study targeting at-risk populations across Somalia, and was conducted from 2007-2008 in partnership with the Somali AIDS Commissions.
