Population Size Estimates (PSEs) for key populations most affected by HIV and HCV, namely gay, bi and other MSM and for people who inject drugs, have been developed. This project has been led by the BCCDC and supported by the Pacific AIDS Network, with consulting work provided by the University of Manitoba. In addition to the PSEs, the team also developed a summary document for the project.
During this work the team was able to develop some reference resources that describe why PSEs are important and that highlight case studies or examples from around the world of places that have used PSEs for program planning. These may be useful resources for teams who want to learn more information about how to develop and use population size estimates in their work.
