Central America Behavioral Surveillance and HIV/STI Prevalence Survey – Honduras, 2005 – 2007MSMCSWPLHGarifunas


Background l.jpg

Background

  • BSS protocol developed without local leadership and without local partners.

  • Civil society was opposed to having a BSS given previous negative experiences.

  • MOH not involved in the planning process and at times, opposed to the BSS for lack of involvement from the start.

  • Protocol’s 1st draft presented at a national forum and everyone was opposed.

  • CDC initially invited to participate providing technical expertise and eventually asked to run the BSS.
