Integrated Biological and Behavioral Surveillance Survey among Female Sex Workers Kathmandu Valley: Round III -2008. USAID, Advancing Surveillance Policies Prevention Care and Support to Fight HIV/AIDS and National Centre for AIDS and STD Control Nepal (2008) This study is the third round of the IBBS conducted from June through August 2008 among 500 FSWs, both street (N=200) and establishment based (N=300) in the Kathmandu Valley (Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, and Lalitpur districts). The study was undertaken to measure the prevalence of HIV and syphilis, and associated risk and prevention behaviors among FSWs. Demographic and sexual behavior data were collected through a structured questionnaire while the prevalence of HIV and syphilis were selectively measured by blood samples. Syphilis was tested using the Rapid Plasma Regain (RPR) test card and HIV was detected by using Determine HIV 1/2 test as first test to detect antibodies against HIV, Uni-Gold test as a second test and SD Bioline HIV 1/2 test as a tie breaker test.

Understanding HIV in Afghanistan: The Emerging Epidemic and Opportunity for Prevention. National AIDS Control Program Afghanistan, Johns Hopkins University and Indian Institute of Health Management Research (2008)

Understanding HIV in Afghanistan: The Emerging Epidemic and Opportunity for Prevention. National AIDS Control Program Afghanistan, JHU and Indian Institute of Health Management Research (2008) Recent studies on HIV transmission in Asian countries characterize an epidemic which centers largely around three behaviors: 1) shared needles and syringes, 2) unprotected sex with sex workers, and 3) unprotected sex between males. While HIV cases are not confined to these three most-at-risk populations (Injecting Drug Users (IDUs), Sex Workers (SWs) and their clients, and men who have sex with men (MSM)), the speed and direction of HIV transmission largely depends on the size, behavior, and access to information of these sub- populations.

Integrated Biological and Behavioral Surveillance among Most-at-Risk Groups in Indonesia, 2007: Surveillance Highlights- Female Sex Workers. Department of Health, Statistics Indonesia, USAID, et al. (2007)

Integrated Biological and Behavioral Surveillance among Most-at-Risk Groups in Indonesia, 2007: Surveillance Highlights- Female Sex Workers. The Department of Health Indonesia, The National AIDS Commission, Komisi Penanggulangan AIDS, et al (2007) Unprotected sex between female sex workers (FSW) and their clients is the second most common route of HIV transmission in Indonesia after sharing of contaminated drug injecting equipment. This summary presents key findings of the 2007 IBBS from eight provinces for two groups of FSW: Direct FSWs (DFSW), who consist of brothel- and street- based sex workers, and Indirect FSWs (IFSW) – women working in karaoke bars, massage parlors, etc. Official estimates are that there were 95,000 - 157,000 Direct FSWs and 85,000 - 107,000 Indirect FSWs in Indonesia in 2006.

The Effectiveness and Costs of Two Methods for the Systematic Prevention and Control of STIs, among Female Sex Workers in Dhaka, Bangladesh 2007. McCormick D, Hoffman I, Miller B,et al (2007)

The Effectiveness and Costs of Two Methods for the Systematic Prevention and Control of STIs, among Female Sex Workers in Dhaka, Bangladesh 2007. McCormick D, Hoffman I, Miller B,et al (2007) Bangladesh is threatened by an HIV epidemic. It is important to identify the best way to achieve rapid reductions in sexually transmitted infections (STI) as an effective approach to HIV prevention. Periodic presumptive treatment (PPT) is suggested as a method for STI control; however, it is considered a short-term solution as the epidemiological justification of this approach is weaker as the STI prevalence declines. Enhanced syndromic management (ESM) is an alternative approach that aims to reduce STI prevalence rapidly, through a single round of presumptive treatment of cervicitis, plus, subsequent monthly clinical care through an ESM protocol based on a risk assessment and laboratory tests.

Integrated Bio-Behavioral Survey among Female Sex Workers in East-West Highways Covering 22 Districts of Nepal: Round III -2006. New ERA, STD/AIDS Counseling and Training Service, FHI, et al. (2006)

 

Integrated Bio-Behavioral Survey among Female Sex Workers in East-West Highways Covering 22 Districts of Nepal: Round III -2006. FHI and USAID (2006)

This study is the third round of the Integrated Bio-Behavioral Survey (IBBS)
conducted among 600 female sex workers (FSWs), from 22 districts of Terai Highway. Among them, 400 respondents were recruited from four study sites representing 16 districts between Jhapa in the east and Rupandehi in the west along the highway in the Terai, and 200 were recruited from three sites representing 6 districts between Kapilvastu in the west to Kanchanpur in the far western region. The IBBS was carried out during the months of March- June 2006. The survey measured HIV and STIs prevalence among FSWs and variables which are associated with a risk of HIV infection, such as condom use, sexual behaviors, knowledge of HIV/AIDS, reported cases of sexually transmitted infections (STI), STI treatment behaviors, exposure to HIV/AIDS messages and drug habits. This survey was also undertaken to compare the findings for condom use and sexual behavior of the FSWs in 22 districts from this study with findings from the 2003 study.
