This article tests a behavioral model of condom use for four groups of female commercial sex workers.
Data were drawn from a study of 614 female sex workers conducted in Bali, Indonesia.
AIDS knowledge, risk behaviors, and factors related to condom use varied substantially among the four groups of women and reflect the social context of their work.
Interventions for each group need to reflect these differences.
Important factors to consider include the level of AIDS and STD knowledge in their environment, the characteristics of the clients served, and the degree of supervision that they receive.
