Sexual mixing and condom use with different types of sex partners among non-institutionalized sexually active female injecting drug users in Sichuan, China



Sexual mixing and condom use with different types of sex partners among non-institutionalized sexually active female injecting drug users in Sichuan, China



Aids and Behavior 15(1): 86-94



Behavioral surveillance data of 1422 sexually active female injecting drug users (IDU) in Sichuan China were analyzed. The prevalence of syringe-sharing was 43.5%. Respectively, 59.0%, 38.5% and 55.7% had regular, non-regular, and commercial sex-partner (RP, NRP, and CSP); 44.3% had multiple types of sex partners; 23.6 and 36.2% of those with RP had NRP and CSP. The prevalence of unprotected sex (last episode) with RP, NRP and CSP were respectively 75.4%, 50.7% and 39.3%; these three variables were associated with each other and with syringe sharing (univariate OR = 1.58-30.13). About 85% of the participants had attempted quitting drug use; the experience was not associated with condom use. HIV voluntary counseling and testing was associated with lower likelihood of unprotected sex with RP, NRP and CSP (multivariate OR= 0.44-0.60); the coverage was only 40.7%. Potential bridging of HIV transmission from IDU to non-IDU populations is a serious concern.
