Interventions developed to reduce the risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) have typically focused on changes in discrete behaviours. However, simple behaviours alone may not be directly related to risk of infection. This chapter examines the types of behavioural measures commonly used, and explores the development of complex measures. It considers the utility of each with reference to data from randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that have utilized both biological and behavioural measures.

Keywords:   measured behaviour, biology, sexual behaviour, behaviour change, sexually transmitted infections, randomized controlled trials
