Abbreviation
SERBAS
Description
This scale is used to ascertain the number of unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse occasions (i.e. without condom use) by partner type (main versus non-main partners), number of partners, and gender of partners for the 3 months prior to each assessment, using timeline-followback type cues for recall. The SERBAS is a widely used sexual risk behavior assessment with good evidence of reliability and validity among both injection drug users and women at high risk for HIV, among other groups.
