Traduction en anglais : Female prostitution and HIV/AIDS : a review of the epidemiological literature combined with own observations at a contact center for intravenous drug users.
Epidemiological studies show that intravenous drug use represents the main risk for HIV/AIDS infection among female prostitutes in Germany.
According to current information, HIV/AIDS infections are not more prevalent among prostitutes who are not intravenous drug users than in the general population.
To establish effective preventive measures against HIV/AIDS infection, we must differentiate between two specific target groups : 1) female intravenous drug users who engage in prostitution to finance their drug addiction, and 2) female prostitutes who are not intravenous drug users.
Instead of mandatory health checks by government agencies, registered female prostitutes who rarely use intravenous drugs should be offered health counseling and care.
