Almaty, Kazakhstan This in-depth, 236-page report discusses the results of the Priorities for Local AIDS Control Efforts (PLACE) analysis of Almaty, Kazakhstan conducted in 2002 and 2003. PLACE 2002 and PLACE 2003 attempted to identify specific sites within Almaty where HIV transmission was likely to occur and to examine the change in these sites over time. This assessment included questions provided by local intervention groups to help focus and monitor prevention programs, and attempted to collect more information to estimate the size of the most-at-risk populations in Almaty. Community informants identified more than 850 unique sites in 2002 and more than 1,000 unique sites in 2003 as places where people meet new sexual partne rs, commercial sex workers solicit clients, and injection drug users socialize. Researchers interviewed 2,100 individuals at more than 250 of these sites about their risk behaviors, receptivity to HIV/AIDS prevention efforts. The results of this work, as well as in-depth analysis and recommendations for future HIV/AIDS prevention efforts, are presented in this report. Karganda, Kazakhstan The PLACE (Priorities for Local AIDS Control Efforts) protocol was implemented in Karganda, Kazakhstan in 2002 to determine whether there was any overlap in the injecting drug user and sexual netowrks and to identify where HIV prevention efforts should focus to minimize HIV transmission. A follow-up assessment was planned for 2003 to determine to what extent AIDS prevention programs had successfully reached target sites and whether gaps remained in prog ram coverage. This report summarizes the findings of these two assessments. Unfortunately, the interim period between assessments was not sufficient to implement the range of prevention activites anticipated, so the 2003 assessment was essentially a repeat of the 2002 assessments with some additional improvements and objectives.
