China: More Than Half Beijing's Prostitutes Shun Condoms

December 10, 2008

A recent report from China's official Xinhua News Agency quotes the director of the municipal health bureau as saying only 47 percent of Beijing's 90,000 sex workers use condoms. The article also said sexual transmission now accounts for 55 percent of HIV transmissions in the capital, surpassing intravenous drug use as the most common route of infection. Some 22,000 venues in Beijing -- including hotels and resorts -- provide free condoms, and almost 3,000 condom vending machines have been installed at entertainment businesses.
