Understanding the Dynamics of Condom Use Among Female Sex Workers in China
April 20, 2009
The current study examines "the complex relationships between multiple levels of determinant factors of condom use with clients among female sex workers in China" through the use of "a hypothesized theoretical model that combines concepts from the health belief model and social cognitive theory."
"Self-efficacy, perceived benefits of unprotected sex, and perceived establishment-level support are proximate determinants of condom use among female sex workers," the authors concluded. "Future HIV prevention interventions should integrate these factors into conceptual frameworks."
