Researchers used the Priorities for Local AIDS Control Efforts (PLACE) method in Cape Town, South Africa, from 1999 to 2002. The PLACE method identifies specific sites where high-risk populations meet to find sexual partners and inject drugs. PLACE efforts then collects behavioral information from the people attending these sites and assesses local HIV/AIDS prevention efforts. For this study, 977 people socializing at 40 sites were randomly selected and interviewed in 1999, 2000, and 2002 about their sexual history, condom use, and willingness to attend HIV/AIDS educational programs.
