HIV prevalence among Venezuelan refugees in Colombia
This proposal aims to support local HIV surveillance efforts and inform HIV policy decisions for Venezuelans living in Colombia.

This goal will be achieved through the following objectives: 1) Evaluate appropriate considerations RDS and HIV surveillance through formative assessment among Venezuelan PLHIV and providers serving PLHIV in Colombia; 2) Generate updated estimates of HIV prevalence among the general adult population of Venezuelans living in Colombia; 2a) Generate estimates of treatment coverage and viral load suppression among the general population of Venezuelan PLHIV; and 2b) Generate updated estimates of HIV prevalence among key populations at increased risk for HIV through subgroup analysis; and 3) Support improved efforts to identify new or undiagnosed infections through a hybrid RDS-case finding approach that is integrated within surveillance efforts.
