Abstract: Our study was part of the evaluation of the Avahan HIV prevention program targeted at female sex workers (FSW) in India. Treatment of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) was part of the strategies used in this program. We assessed whether having received a treatment was associated with consistent condom use (CCU). This cross-sectional study was conducted in 2006-2007 among 1378 FSWs in five Indian districts. Reported CCU was lowest among FSWs who had received ≥3 treatments in the last three to 12 months with their new or occasional clients [Adjusted prevalence ratio (APR): 0.70, 95% Confidence interval (95%CI): 0.57-0.84] and for the most recent repeat client (APR 0.63, 95%CI: 0.51-0.78). Further research on the causal link between those two variables is warranted.
