mathmatical modelling shows

Thailand

This research identifies factors that distinguish rural women who have migrated to Bangkok for the purpose of enhancing their economic wellbeing by engaging in the sex industry and those who have stayed in their rural communities and are not engaged in the sex industry. The research used primary data collected through interviews in the red light districts of Bangkok and Pattaya and in villages in rural provinces in Thailand. A total of 100 respondents provided information for the study: 55 percent from the red light districts and the remainder from the provinces.  This powerful research is proof that with the

The following is an abstract about the potential benefits of a HIV vaccine. It mentions ‘risk compensation’ which means abandoning condoms. It points out that mathmatical modelling shows that a partially effective vaccine may lead to increased HIV among sex workers if sex workers are less able to persuade clients to use condoms. The same is true of Prep and microbicides. Although published data from the recent ALVAC/AIDSVAX trial in Thailand (RV144) indicated the HIV vaccine provided very modest protection overall (31.2%), new analysis of trial data has suggested higher efficacy levels earlier in the follow-up period. CDC and UNAIDS organized

The potential impact of an HIV vaccine with limited protection on HIV incidence in Thailand: A modeling study

The following is an abstract about the potential benefits of a HIV vaccine. It mentions ‘risk compensation’ which means abandoning condoms. It points out that mathmatical modelling shows that a partially effective vaccine may lead to increased HIV among sex workers if sex workers are less able to persuade clients to use condoms. The same is true of Prep and microbicides. Since this will inevitably happen when clients find out about any technology or medicine that will be seen an alternative to condoms this is a very important piece of information for sex workers. The RV144 trial on the ALVAC/AIDSVAX candidate
