Commercial sex plays an increasingly important role in China’s growing HIV and sexually transmitted infection (STI) epidemics . In China, street-based sex workers are a subgroup of female sex workers with a particularly high risk of HIV/STI infections but are neglected in responses to HIV. This study assesses changes in HIV voluntary counselling and testing utilisation and high-risk sexual behaviors following a 3-month HIV preventive intervention among street-based sex workers in Chongqing.
