Population size estimates and mapping populations are important to adequately respond to health issues in high-risk​ groups. They are needed for advocacy, to develop programs, and to plan, implement and monitor interventions. This information also helps provide an understanding of the social determinants of health and identify needed revisions in policies and laws. The workshop will provide intensive training in the concepts of mapping and size evaluation. Participants should leave the workshop with:

- Knowledge of methods for collecting size estimation data and an understanding of approaches most appropriate for their respective settings;
- Working understanding of the uses of population size estimates for policy and programming;
- Skills needed for analyzing and reconciling size estimation data;
- Understanding of approaches to estimating program coverage
- A step-by-step plan for coming up with national level size estimates for any of several high-risk groups

This workshop is designed to build the capacity of professionals to use population information, produce local and national estimates, understand the scope of the problem, set targets, estimate resources needed and plan appropriate interventions. The key topics being covered are:

- The concept of Population Size Estimations
- Importance of size estimation in programme planning
- Methods of Population Size Estimation
- Challenges in Mapping and Size Estimation
- Measuring Coverage of Interventions
- Use of Data for Estimation
- Designing Size Estimates Studies

The course fee for this workshop is US$ 2500, which includes:
- 5-day face-to-face workshop in Istanbul, Turkey
- Resources, course material, and workshop kit
- Lunch, tea + snacks during the workshop sessions
