The guidelines fill a gap in providing tools for surveying HIV prevalence in key populations, and the included questionnaires may also inform general population surveys.

Currently, many researchers undertake surveys using country-specific indicators. These guidelines standardize the conduct of biobehavioural surveys to permit comparisons between as well as within countries over time. The use of common indicators allows for uniformity in the measurement of items and production of data that can be used by various global, regional, national and local actors in planning prevention and treatment services, tracking progress in the provision of HIV prevention and treatment services, and identifying gaps in access to services.
