Traduction en anglais : Prevention of hepatitis B in STD high risk groups.
The prevalence of HBV-markers in our patients in STD high-risk groups was markedly higher than the average in Vienna. 19% of the registered prostitutes, 44% of the illegal prostitutes, 29% of the bar hostesses and 39% of the STD patients were found to be positive in at least one HBV marker.
I.v. drug abuse, African origin and irregular condom use were the most important risk factors in our patients.
The hepatitis B vaccination campaign was successful to a high degree. 69% of the registered prostitutes and 85% of the regularly examined bar hostesses accepted the vaccination.
Promotion programmes should focus on institutions caring for STD risk persons rather than on the persons themselves.
