We applied the MOT model to estimate the infections of HIV in each subgroups of Sudan’s population.
This study was supported by The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM) under the project “Establishment of the evidence base for national HIV/AIDS program by strengthening of HIV/AIDS surveillance system in the country” (GEO-H-GPIC).
The purpose of this study was to estimate the population size of MSM in Tbilisi, Georgia. We applied several methods, literature review, network scale-up (NSU), mobile/web apps multiplier, service and unique object multiplier, network-based capture-recapture, Handcock RDS-based and Wisdom of Crowd’s methods. This study was supported by The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM) under the project “Establishment of the evidence base for national HIV/AIDS program by strengthening of HIV/AIDS surveillance system in the country” (GEO-H-GPIC).
This was a pilot study of the new technology to measure spatial movement and social network interactions among injection drug users in San Francisco: ethics, feasibility, acceptability, and prevention research implications. It was supported by the UCSF Centre for AIDS Prevention Studies (CAPS) as an Innovative Pilot Project.

Link to study protocol and questionnaire
In line with HIV/AIDS Round 8 project work-plan and HIV/AIDS national strategic plan, the CDC and CCM intend to engage the services of an organization/firm to help strengthen their monitoring role through systematic and continuous monitoring of the performance of the above-mentioned project.

The aim of this study is to estimate the size of hidden groups and the groups at high risk of HIV/AIDS and will be funded by the MOHME.
The main objective of this study is to provide a precise estimate of STIs prevalence in Iranian adults (18+). This project is supported financially by UNFPA and MOHME.
A calibration study adjusts syndromic diagnosis by doctors and midwifes according to etiologic identification of STIs. We will determine types and frequency of STIs in Iran using etiologic methods in laboratories to assess the relative contribution of the STI pathogens that cause STI syndromes in Iran. This study is financially supported by UNFPA and executive supported by MOHME.
This study aims to assess and translate the validity and reliability of the verbal autopsy questionnaire. KUMS will support the project financially.
The aim of this study is to provide an estimation for the size of alcohol and drug users and key population at risk of HIV/AIDS among students of universities of Kerman by two methods: NSU and direct method. This project is supported financially by MOHME.
The aim of this study is to estimate the number of new HIV infection and confidence intervals in various subgroups via Monte-Carlo simulation separately. This study will be financial supported by UNAIDS.
This project aims to depict Spatio-temporal dynamic of HIV virus in Iran and is financially supported by KUMS and MOHME.
This project is a cross-sectional study which will be done by an evaluation before and after the intervention without control group over a one-year period. This project is funded by SAPTO, MeHSHAD and MOHME.
The objective of this activity is to create a good documentation of the existing HIV prevention activities in 10 prisons in different cities of Iran, as well as to find the gaps with possibility of more improvement.
The HIVHUB is expected to review and analyze current surveillance system of national HIV/AIDS program in the country and its performance regarding current national control program and strategies and expected output and outcomes in national and international level. Results of this project will advise on gaps and was of improvement of the current surveillance system. This project is supported by WHO.

The objective of this study is to estimate the impact of needle and syringe programs (NSPs) on HIV incidence in PWID in Kermanshah, Iran, based on a genetic biomarker study in 2014. This project is funded by SAPTO, MeHSHAD and MOHME.
The forecasting of HIV incidence in different MARPs in Iran was estimated by deterministic models. The final report was published by MOHME.
The aim of this project was to evaluate the knowledge, attitude, and practice of students toward STIs in 5 different non-medical universities. MOHME supported this project.
This project was designed to review all available documentation on knowledge, attitude and practice regarding sexually transmitted infections and was financially supported by MOHME.
