HIV, STIs and Risk Behaviour in East Timor: An Historic Opportunity for Effective Action. Pisani E and Dili Survey Team (2004)

cover-coming-soon In the early 2000s, the government of the newly–independent nation of East Timor (Timor Leste or Timor Lorosae) expressed concern about the possibility of an epidemic of HIV developing in the country. High levels of poverty and social disruption that resulted from the conflict surrounding independence, combined with the presence of several thousand peacekeepers and other international personnel, many of them from countries with high HIV prevalence, led the country to develop a national AIDS strategy.

Geographic and Social Mapping of Commercial Sex: A Manual of Procedures. East-West Center, Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Centre and The Rockefeller Foundation (2002)

Geographic and Social Mapping of Commercial Sex: A Manual of Procedures. East-West Center, Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Centre and The Rockefeller Foundation (2002) The importance of commercial sex to HIV transmission has been well established in many places. Because sex workers and their clients change partners frequently, they are potentially exposed to HIV at much higher rates than others in the population. As a consequence, unless precautions are taken to prevent transmission of HIV in commercial sex encounters, HIV prevalence in sex workers and their clients can grow rapidly to very high levels. However, in most countries commercial sex is illegal, often with substantial “underground” components that remain invisible to much of society.
