Background: Used in conjunction with biological surveillance, behavioural surveillance provides data allowing for a more precise definition of HIV/STI prevention strategies. In 2008, mapping of behavioural surveillance in EU/EFTA countries was performed on behalf of the European Centre for Disease prevention and Control.Method: Nine questionnaires were sent to all 31 member States and EEE/EFTA countries requesting data on the overall behavioural and second generation surveillance system and on surveillance in the general population, youth, men having sex with men (MSM), injecting drug users (IDU), sex workers (SW), migrants, people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA), and sexually transmitted infection (STI) clinics patients. Requested data included information on system organisation (e.g. sustainability, funding, institutionalisation), topics covered in surveys and main indicators.Results: Twenty-eight of the 31 countries contacted supplied data. Sixteen countries reported an established behavioural surveillance system, and 13 a second generation surveillance system (combination of biological surveillance of HIV/AIDS and STI with behavioural surveillance). There were wide differences as regards the year of survey initiation, number of populations surveyed, data collection methods used, organisation of surveillance and coordination with biological surveillance. The populations most regularly surveyed are the general population, youth, MSM and IDU. SW, patients of STI clinics and PLWHA are surveyed less regularly and in only a small number of countries, and few countries have undertaken behavioural surveys among migrant or ethnic minorities populations. In many cases, the identification of populations with risk behaviour and the selection of populations to be included in a BS system have not been formally conducted, or are incomplete. Topics most frequently covered are similar across countries, although many different indicators are used. In most countries, sustainability o

Cooper K, Day S, Green A, Ward Het al., 2007, Maids, Migrants and Occupational Health in the London Sex Industry., Anthropol Med, Vol: 14, Pages: 41-53, ISSN: 1364-8470

It has been argued that norms of occupational health have weakened with diversification in the sex industry. We explore this issue in walk-in flats in London, focusing on relationships between managers (maids) and sex workers. Today, most maids are local and most sex workers are 'migrants'. We collected data on 117 maids and sex workers, and carried out intensive fieldwork with seven maids and 17 sex workers. Managers take prime responsibility for educating and inducting new workers. Authoritarian management has been considered bad for health both in these walk-in flats and in the '100 per cent condom use programme' criticized by sex workers' projects. Yet, we found that maids acted as friends and managers, which helped settle new sex workers. Over time, however, migrants were more affected by issues of isolation and exploitation than local workers. Alternative models of health promotion such as peer education must be seen in a wider legal context where the lack of rights makes it difficult to appeal against exploitation, or to become mobile.
