2011 Integrated HIV Behavioral and Serologic Surveillance (IHBSS). Department of Health, National Epidemiology Center Philippines. (2013)

immage

In 2011, the fourth round of the Integrated HIV Behavioral and Serologic Surveillance (IHBSS) was led by the Department of Health. The IHBSS would provide crucial strategic information that would influence and provide direction for policies, programs, and services to help address the escalating epidemic of HIV in the Philippines and its consequent burden. The most-at-risk populations (MARPS) were included in the surveillance and in this report - Males who have sex with Males (MSM), Female Sex Workers (FSW), and Injecting Drug Users (IDU).

Experience of Violence and Adverse Reproductive Health Outcomes, HIV Risks among Mobile Female Sex Workers in India. BMC Public Health. Swain, S N. Saggurti, N. Battala, M. Verma, R K. & Jain, A K. (2011)

Vietnam: HIV/AIDS TRaC Study among Injecting Drug Users in Mong Cai, Uong Bi, and Thai Nguyen City. DFID and PSI (2006)

Female sex workers (FSWs) are a population sub-group most affected by the HIV epidemic in India and elsewhere. Despite research and programmatic attention to FSWs, little is known regarding sex workers’ reproductive health and HIV risk in relation to their experiences of violence. This paper therefore aims to understand the linkages between violence and the reproductive health and HIV risks among a group of mobile FSWs in India. Data are drawn from a cross-sectional behavioural survey conducted in 22 districts from four high HIV prevalence states (Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu) in India between September 2007 and July 2008. The survey sample included 5,498 FSWs who had moved to at least two different places for sex work in the past two years, and are classified as mobile FSWs in the current study.

HIV and AIDS as a public health threat do not require rational for continued worldwide attention. Complicated disease transmission cycle, complex human interaction and paucity of reliable data have positioned the issue as primary health concern across the globe. Periodic global data on HIV and AIDS prevalence, incidence and people living with the disease has reported a decline which is primarily attributable to the reduction in incidence.

Integrated Biological and Behavioral Surveillance (IBBS) Survey among Female Sex Workers (FSWs) in Kathmandu Valley, Nepal - Round IV - 2011. USAID and ASHA (2011)

IBBS 2011 FSW Kathmandu

This is the fourth round of the IBBS survey conducted among 593 Female Sex Workers (FSWs) - of whom 355 were establishment-based and 238 street-based. The survey covered the entire Kathmandu Valley, including the Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, and Lalitpur districts. The fieldwork for the survey was carried out from January 16 to March 6, 2011. The survey was undertaken primarily to track the trend of HIV infection and syphilis in FSWs and to understand sexual behaviors among FSWs in the Kathmandu Valley. Information on the socio-demographic, sexual behavior, pregnancy history and use of family planning devices, drug use and exposure to STI/HIV/AIDS awareness programs was collected through a structured questionnaire, while the prevalence of HIV and syphilis was tested via blood samples. Syphilis was tested using the Rapid Plasma Reagin (RPR) test card. HIV was detected by using the Determine HIV 1/2 test as a first test to detect antibodies against HIV, the Uni-Gold test as a second test, and the SD Bioline HIV 1/2 test as a tie breaker test as per the VCT guideline of National Centre for AIDS and STD Control (NCASC).

Male Use of Female Sex Work in India: A Nationally Representative Behavioural Survey. Gaffey MF, Venkatesh S, Dhingra N, et al (2011)

cover-coming-soon

Heterosexual transmission of HIV in India is driven by the male use of female sex workers (FSW), but few studies have examined the factors associated with using FSW. This nationally representative study examined the prevalence and correlates of FSW use among 31,040 men aged 15–49 years in India in 2006. Nationally, about 4% of men used FSW in the previous year, representing about 8.5 million FSW clients.
