An article in Sexually Transmitted Diseases, June 2008, Vol. 35, No. 6, p.558–565. This study aims to estimate HIV/STI prevalence and to identify HIV risk factors among FSWs and miner clients. It found among sex workers prevalences for HIV of 8.3%, Herpes simplex virus-2 70.8%, Syphilis 12.5%, Neisseria gonorrhoeae 36.8%, Chlamydia Trachomatis 46.3%, Trichomonas vaginalis 22.1%. 90.6% were infected with any STI. Illegal drug use was associated with HIV and 45.8% reported no condom use with the last client. In miner clients, HIV prevalence was 1.8%.

In this study in Pakistan 3350 male and transgender sex workers were surveyed, of which 2694 were included in the study. The average age of respondents was 24.1 years (SD 6.3), and the average duration of sex work was 7.5 years (SD 5.9). Respondents averaged 30.9 (SD 2.7) paid receptive anal sex acts in the month prior to their interview, while 21.5% reported using a condom during their last occurrence of paid anal sex. Of those surveyed, HIV prevalence was 5.4 per 1000; notably, no HIV-positive respondents reported any injection drug use.

HIV and Sex Work in Cambodia

Cambodia is internationally recognized for having successfully reduced its HIV prevalence among the general population from about 3% in 1997 to 0.7% in 2009.
