Using convenience sampling methods, street-based FSWs were recruited from August to February All participants completed an anonymous questionnaire on socioeconomic and sex behavioral information and were tested for HIV and syphilis. Risk for HIV and syphilis infection was assessed using univariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses. No HIV infections were found. The prevalence rate of syphilis was Nearly Having reproductive tract infections at current visit, duration of sex work more than 5 years, indulgence in unprotected sex trade in the last time, unprotected sex trade in the last month, and unprotected sex with boyfriend or spouse in the last month were reported by In multivariate logistic regression analysis, having reproductive tract infections at current visit [odds ratio OR , The prevalence rate of syphilis among street-based FSWs is very high.
Most street-based FSWs in our survey had low education, long experience of commercial sex, and high rate of inconsistent condom use. Comprehensive interventions targeting this high-risk group, especially scaling up screening and ensuring consistent use of condoms during sex are needed. Syphilis, caused by the spirochete Treponema pallidum , results in multiple patterns of skin and visceral disease.
Syphilis could enhance the sexual transmission of human immunodeficiency virus HIV and exacerbate the course of HIV infection. Commercial sex driven by rapid economic development, large income disparities, limited employment opportunities for women, surplus for men, and changing notions of sexuality has re-emerged.
The National AIDS Sentinel Surveillance Guidelines in China require that all types of entertainment establishments should be systematically mapped, classified into high-, middle- and low-tiers based on high-risk behaviors, and sampled proportionately within each tier.
Sex work location is directly observable and more frequently used by researchers in China and elsewhere for categorization. Street-based FSWs meet their clients on the streets or other places and have no other occupation. Li et al. Furthermore, a study found that the prevalence rates of lifetime and active syphilis among street-based FSWs This study therefore aims to determine the prevalence rate and related risk factors of syphilis among street-based FSWs in Nanchang.
