The effects of establishment practices, knowledge and attitudes on condom use among Filipina sex workers.
The findings for a baseline assessment for a community-based HIV/STD prevention intervention for commercial sex workers (CSWs) and managers of the establishments that employ them in the Philippines is presented in this study.
CSW knowledge, attitudes, behaviours and establishment policies concerning HIV prevention were assessed.
Baseline assessments are part of an iterative process that will be used to modify the planned intervention.
The preliminary findings point to the importance of an intervention that stresses changes in establishment policies and expectations as a means of reducing risk behaviours associated with HIV/STD transmission.
