    Article - En anglais


    This paper examines the association of depressive symptoms with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and risk behaviors among 127 sex workers.

    Data were obtained by a structured interview and blood specimens tested for HIV.

    Findings showed a high prevalence rate of depressive symptoms for all sex workers regardless of HIV infection status.

    Results of a logistic regression analysis indicated that the use of injected drugs and engaging in unprotected intercouse with clients were strongly associated with a high level of depressive symptoms.
