Data from women in a cohort study recruited in were analyzed to determined whether trading sex for drugs or money was independently associated with human immunodeficiency virus HIV seroprevalence in a population of female intravenous drug users.
The women were grouped according to the number of partners with whom they reported trading sex for drugs or money during the previous 10 years: none, 1 through 49 low , or 50 or more high ; the prevalence of HIV seropositivity in the three groups was Logistic regression was used to compare the low- and high-trade groups separately with the group that reported no trading. Low trading was not associated with seroprevalent HIV infection.
In a multivariate model, high trading compared with no trading was significantly associated with HIV seropositivity after adjustment for cocaine use, history of sexually transmitted diseases, and duration of intravenous drug use.
These data indicate that, among intravenous drug-using women, high levels of trading sex for drugs or money were independently associated with HIV infection. This group needs to be targeted for further intensive intervention. PMID: The trading of sex for drugs or money and HIV seropositivity among female intravenous drug users. Related No related items.
