Results & Outcomes
HIV and STI baseline data have been collected in post-conflict Liberia. A
total of 118 males and 132 females (n=250) were initially enrolled into
the programs. The 3-month follow-up survey was administered to 115
males and 126 females (n=241) in both programs from the four
communities, thus constituting an overall retention rate of 96% (i.e.
attrition rate 4%). The 9-month follow-up survey was administered to
111 males and 113 female (n=224), constituting an overall retention rate
of 90% (i.e. attrition rate 10%), respectively.
