"Tonight something special is happening in this neighbourhood." Report on experimental distribution of condoms to clients of prostitutes



Std Bulletin 13: 8-9



PMID: 12285728

The incidence of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) among prostitutes and their clients is relatively high in the Netherlands, although condoms have been known for a long time in prostitution. As part of the 1987 national condom campaign the STD Foundation developed public education activities targeting prostitutes, their partners, clients, and procurers trying to convince them about safer sexual contact to prevent STDs. Members of the working group Client and Prostitution (KLEP) offered their cooperation. A total of 18 condom distributions were carried out between January-November 1988. About 5000 clients of prostitutes were approached in the redlight districts of 9 towns and cities after members of the KLEP personally had informed prostitutes and procurers by means of leaflets in 5 languages about the purpose of the campaign and guidelines had been drawn up about distribution. Positive remarks were often heard, however, there were also those who ignored the distributors. Some of the positive results included the prostitutes' wish for safer sex and that the procurers frequently handed out condoms to clients in clubs and private houses. A follow-up project in preparation envisions reaching clients after contact with the prostitute, organization of local discussion evenings after condom distribution, and the provision of telephone numbers and addresses. The distribution of condoms frequently prompted prostitutes to inquire about STD/AIDS prevention, thus local and regional organizations might consider launching prevention activities. In November 1989 a report containing these recommendations was to be presented to representatives of local and regional organizations in localities where condom distribution had taken place.
