While brothel-based sex work is regulated by the Peruvian government, there is little data on STI risk factors reported by female sex workers FSW. This study compared high risk behaviors among Peruvian FSW from government regulated brothels with both clients and non-commercial partners. Female sex workers FSW continue to be considered a core group for sexually transmitted infection STI transmission because of their high infection rate, large numbers of sexual partners, and frequency of high risk behaviors such as inconsistent condom use [ 12 ].
METHODS: Forty female prostitutes in two brothels were interviewed about client resistance to condoms and techniques for facilitating condom use. Condom use rates were markedly lower with nonpaying sex partners lowers than with clients. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU.
While it is increasingly common for public health programs to charge for contraceptive supplies, there is a scarcity of data on the relative effectiveness of commercial programs and free distribution programs.
