Inhoud: This study investigated AIDS and STD knowledge, risk behaviour patterns and condom use among three district groups of female commercial sex workers (CSWs) in Bali, Indonesia. Individual in-depth interviews were conducted with 71 female CSWs. These CSW groups differ in the prices they charge, their places and modes of employment, educational backgrounds, levels of AIDS and STD Knowledge, number of clients served and levels of condom use. Knowledge of the mutes of transmission and appropriate prevention practices is low among all groups, and despite significant differences in their number of clients and their condom use, all groups report high levels of STD symptoms. Although HIV seroprevalence rates are currently low in Indonesia, high risk sexual behaviour patterns place all three groups of CSWs and their clients at great risk of infection. Interventions targeted to specific groups of CSWs and clients should be undertaken as soon as possible, including educational actions utilizing peer educators, condom promotion and distribution, together with improved STD diagnosis and treatment for CSWs and their clients.
