Phase I Objectives focused on:1. Injecting Drug Users:-Understanding needle sharing behavior-Obtaining typical scenarios about injecting behavior-Identifying when and how needle sharing could be avoided or the use of clean needles negotiated2. Transgenders:-Understanding sexual risk taking behaviors-Obtaining typical scenarios about sexual encounters-Identifying when condoms or lubrication should be introduced or should be negotiated.The narrative methodology with dyads/triads was useful in eliciting beliefs, attitudes and social norms around risky taking behavior in the Barriers to Condom Use in Chiang Mai study, and was utilized again for this research study. Dyads/triads provide an opportunity for 2-3 informants to interact at same time. The environment is more personal with a group of friends, which may encourage shy informants to speak out. They also enable groups to delve deeper on specific issues. A small group allows for more dynamic, creative activities and the method is easily mobile. In addition, the moderator can observe agreement or disagreement between informants.Moderators were selected and trained by PSI in the methodology and use of picture cards and discussion guides for dyads and triads.4 Homogeneous mini-groups of two to three friends were recruited, as the formative research recommended.
