Community-Based HIV and STI Prevention in Women Working in Indoor Sex Markets.
MetadataShow full item record
I have picked this study because knowing who the target population is, including the country of origin, widens the scope to work better with study results or population intervention outcomes. According to studies done in Kenya, home-based sex work in slum areas is the most frequently practiced, compared with street and bar-based sex work. Customers are socialized towards this as well as to where the sex-workers live and operate. These women are mainly local, or from East African countries: predominantly Uganda and Tanzania. This is a phenomenon that practitioners should note. This study is relevant as it informs us of the programming, the entry point, the language content and methodology to use in the recruitment and administration of HIV behaviour modification and retention. Also, it is useful for research design, implementation and monitoring. This process should allow us to go further to use the findings to develop responsive activities for HIV and AIDS prevention, treatment, care and support across continuum-targeted female sex-workers. In addition, these findings can be used to develop policy.
