One of the two different sampling methodologies (Time and Location Sampling and Respondent Driven Sampling) can be chosen as an appropriate method for collecting biological and social data in MSM communities in each local context, according to SIALON II experience.

Furthermore, the SIALON II study demonstrates how GARP and ECDC indicators can be used to provide a key measure for basic monitoring of HIV.
