  1. The relational determinants of condom use with commercial sex partners in Thailand.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    To analyze the extent and determinants of condom use with commercial sex partners among lower socioeconomic status groups in the Thai population.

    Design 

    Respondents were sampled in Udon Thani, Saraburi and Bangkok in 1992.

    Completed sample size was 678 women in brothels, 330 male truck drivers and 1075 men aged 17-45 years.

    Behavioral data and local sexual network information were collected using structured questionnaires (face-to-face interviews), focus groups and in-depth unstructured interviews.

    Methods 

    Data were analyzed using univariate and multivariate logistic regression.

    Results 

    Condom use with commercial partners remains inconsistent.

    Consistent use was reported by 61% of women in brothels, 25% of truck drivers, and 29% of men in the low-income population.

    The single strongest predictor of consistent condom use for all groups is type of partnership.

    Consistent use drops significantly with regular (multivisit) commercial sex partners compared with casual (single visit) commercial partners ; adjusted odds of consistent use are 0.22 for women and 0.25 for men.

    Brothel women report that one in five of their commercial partners is a « regular », and 20% of the young men who report a commercial partner report a « regular ».

    Discussion 

    The strongest determinant of consistent condom use is the nature of the relational bond between the partners, rather than their individual characteristics, knowledge or attitudes.
