The relationship between HIV/Sexually Transmitted Infection risk and alcohol use during commercial sex episodes: results from the study of female commercial sex workers in the Philippines
MetadataShow full item record
The results of this study will be particularly important in designing more responsive interventions for alcohol-related behaviour towards better control of HIV and sexually transmitted infections. This interesting finding involved a large sample size (1114 female commercial sex workers), geographical distribution (four provinces in the Philippines) and duration which were large enough for generalization. The authors re-demonstrate the association between alcohol use amongst female sex-workers and clients and HIV/sexually transmitted disease risk.
