Abstract

BACKGROUND: Consistent condom use among female sex workers (FSWs) is a key intervention in China’s AIDS Control Program. Female sex workers (FSWs) in China are at increased risk for acquiring HIV/AIDS because of low knowledge about HIV transmission and inconsistent use of condoms, the grade of venues may play a role in HIV/AIDS-related knowledge and consistent condom use of female sex workers.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted among 802 FSWs in 2016 in Fuyang, China. A self-administered questionnaire was used to assess whether there is a need of different intervention services promotion of consistent condom use among FSWs in different-grade entertainment venues.

RESULTS: Multivariate logistic regression analysis indicated that knowledge scores of HIV transmission routes and peer education were associated with consistent condom use in large-size venues, while peer education was associated with consistent condom use in mid-size venues. Knowledge scores of HIV non-transmission routes, knowledge scores of AIDS prevention/control, and peer education were associated with consistent condom use in small venues.

CONCLUSIONS: Our data suggested that the strategies for strengthen interventions on health benefits of consistent condom use of FSWs should differ by size of venue.
