HIV, STIs prevalent among male sex workers in Mexico City

November 21, 2014

HIV and other sexually transmitted infections were common among Mexican male sex workers, according to recent data.

Omar Galárraga, PhD, of Brown University School of Public Health, and colleagues conducted interviews and infection tests with 267 male sex workers who had enrolled at Clínica Especializada Condesa in Mexico City. Participants (mean age, 25 years) reported primarily having sex with other men. Thirty-seven percent of the cohort reported that legal sex work was their primary occupation, 16% were unemployed, and 8% were homeless or lived in a shelter.
