Our objective was to determine the proportion of HIV prevalence in the general female adult population that is attributable to the occupational exposure of female sex work, due to unprotected sexual intercourse. Population attributable fractions of HIV prevalence due to female sex work were estimated for A systematic search was conducted to retrieve required input data from available sources. Data gaps of HIV prevalence in FSWs for were filled using multilevel modeling and multivariate linear regression.
An estimated fifteen percent of HIV in the general female adult population is attributable to unsafe female sex work. The region with the highest attributable fraction is Sub Saharan Africa, but the burden is also substantial for the Caribbean, Latin America and South and Southeast Asia. We estimate , deaths from HIV are a result of female sex work globally, 98, of which occur in Sub-Saharan Africa. If HIV prevalence in other population groups originating from sexual contact with FSWs had been considered, the overall attributable burden would probably be much larger.
Effective HIV prevention measures exist and have been successfully targeted at key populations in many settings. These must be scaled up. Surveillance, prevention and treatment of HIV in FSWs should benefit both this often neglected vulnerable group and the general population. This is particularly the case when they are stigmatized or even illegal, which might make FSWs reluctant to disclose their profession. These women are unlikely to appear in population statistics . FSWs may have an important role in disease transmission in a population, often spreading the virus between other key population groups or clients who subsequently transmit the disease to their spouses .
However, the fraction of HIV infections in the general female population that is attributable to the occupational exposure of female sex work, i.
In general, the two main risk factors for HIV transmission in a population are unprotected sex and injecting drugs with contaminated instruments . Globally, most HIV infections are transmitted through heterosexual transmission .
