In Brief

In November 2014, Dr Arnoldus Tiniap from the West Papua provincial health department presented some of the results of the 2013 Integrated Bio-Behavioural Survey (IBBS), which is the most recent Tanah Papua–wide survey of HIV indicators, including HIV prevalence, knowledge of HIV, sexual behaviour and condom use. His presentation was a key component of the workshop 'Developing an HIV Prevention and Control Strategy for Papuans in Tanah Papua' (see Munro 2015).1 It has been seven years since the last IBBS was conducted in Tanah Papua, and the results were greatly anticipated by those in attendance. The results have yet to be made available beyond certain organisations in Indonesia, but this In Brief presents a recap of Dr Tiniap's workshop presentation to facilitate access to this important new data, and to encourage further research on particular themes.
