||This study’s main aim was to provide a baseline estimate of the prevalence of HIV and AIDS among the four vulnerable populations: MSM, FSWs, IDUs, and prisoners. The combination of conducting a behavioral questionnaire along with a biological test for HIV helped us to better understand the behavioral risk factors and to link the risky behavior to the HIV status of participants.
