Condom promotion, sexually transmitted diseases treatment, and declining incideence of HIV-1 infection in female Zairian sex workers.
The control of sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV-1, among sex workers and their clients in urban areas in developing countries, is considered a valuable and costeffective intervention to contain the spread of HIV-1.
The effect of a programme of STD treatment combined with condom promotion on HIV-1 incidence has so far not been measured.
During an intervention including condom promotion, as well as monthly sexually transmitted disease screening and treatment among 531 initially HIV-1 negative female sex workers in Kinshasa, Zaire, 70 became infected with HIV-1 (incidence of 80 per 100 women-years [wy]).
