To address the impact, we studied market stall vendors in eastern China. A cross-sectional study using a snowball sampling method was conducted from March to July 2007. To estimate HIV/STI prevalence and to identify HIV risk factors among FSWs and miner clients.

A systematic literature review of HIV and STI prevalence and incidence data for FSW in China was conducted to assess current trends. However, few studies of HIV/AIDS-related mucocutaneous manifestations have been reported in China. This list is generated based on data provided by CrossRef.

M. However, another study claimed that drug use was not necessarily associated with increased risk behaviors.4 There has been no systematic study conducted in China to examine recreational drug use by male CSWs and its impact on the magnitude of HIV/STD infection. These cities represent different geographical locations, social and economic development, proximity to opiate drug use center, and HIV prevalence across China. This is a global threat to the sexual and reproductive health in both genders. Extensive epidemiology studies have shown that the epidemiology of KSHV mimics that of KS displaying distinct geographic distribution patterns with low prevalence in North America and Europe, medium prevalence in Eastern European and Mediterranean regions, and high prevalence in some regions in Africa.

The LTFU rate was 29.69 (95 % CI: 27.85–31.62) per 100 PYs and the incidence of HIV infection was 1.06 (95 % CI: 0.74–1.47) per 100 PYs in this longitudinal study in Kaiyuan City, Yunnan province.

Clinical signs including slow response, gaping valves and pale visceral mass were observed in diseased individuals. An open cohort was established from September 2009 to April 2012. A comprehensive search was conducted including online databases like “Wanfang”, Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure, PubMed and manual searches. A 2009 survey of 418 venue-based male commercial sex workers (male CSWs) in Shenzhen, China revealed that 19.9% used recreational drugs. This study examines characteristics of adolescent female sex workers (FSWs) associated with contraceptive use and abortion in Kunming, China.

Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) is a common STI worldwide and primary cause of genital ulcer disease. Background: Herpes simplex virus (HSV) has two types: HSV-1 and HSV-2. There is an urgent need to discover and develop new alternative agents for the management of HSV-1 infection. A total of 1,110 HIV/AIDS patients from Shanxi (Central area, n = 287), Zhejiang (Eastern area, n = 163), Yunnan (Southwestern area, n = 300) and Xinjiang (Northwestern area, n = 360) provinces were analyzed.

High risk groups likely to be infected include female sex workers (FSWs) and their clients, men who have sex with men (MSM), drug users and migrant workers. Human herpes virus 8 (HHV-8) is the etiologic agent associated with development of classical, AIDS-related, iatrogenic, and endemic Kaposi’s sarcoma (KS). Song LX XT X.
