Estimating the population size of female sex workers and transgender women in Sri Lanka
We implemented population size estimation of female sex workers FSW and transgender women TGW in Sri Lanka in using several approaches geographical mapping, service and unique object multiplier and a modified Delphi method during the stakeholder consensus meeting. Mapping was done in 49 randomly selected Divisional Secretariats, which provided a basis for extrapolation of size estimates to the national level. For the multiplier method, we used data from services of non-governmental organisations that FSW and TGW were in contact with, and surveys based on respondent-driven sampling. This study provided baseline estimates of 2, TGW in the country, with a plausible range of 2,—3,, which is 0. The results provide an important point for macro- and micro-level planning of HIV services, allocating programme resources and assessing programme coverage and quality.
