Sexual behaviour in Kenya in relation to STD transmission was investigated with a view to forming a basis for the more rational design of STD/HIV control interventions.
Questionnaires were administered to a sample of 762 men and women attending eight health facilities in two urban centres.
Equal numbers of STD patients (cases) and non-STD related clinic attenders (clinic controls) were selected, matched by gender and clinic.
Another sample of 427 men and women was obtained from a random sampling of households in a slum area in Nairobi (community controls).
Male STD patients who were unmarried, or married but living apart from their wives, reported a higher mean number of sex partners in the previous three months than did male clinic or community controls.
