Inhoud: This paper discusses the background characteristics, sexual relationships, condom use and risk perception of bar workers in Magu district, north-west Tanzania. Bar workers in Magu are geographically mobile. They are not highly educated but probably have a higher level of schooling than average. They are mostly unmarried or divorced. They choose bar work because, given the resources available, it provides them with a good balance between earning their own income and being independent. Although the women are still partially dependent on the financial support provided by sexual partners and sexual relations tend to be based on exchange, bar workers cannot simply be equated with prostitutes. Some have a regular partner and the odd casual partner while others may have large numbers of casual contacts. Regular partners are almost always married and often itinerant. The distinction between regular and casual partners is important and based on the nature and extent of financial support. It is also related to condom use and therefore to risk. Women claim to be able to demand condom use from casual partners but not from regular partners. Although women claim that regular partners can be trusted, they nonetheless admit feeling at risk of AIDS and STDs from these same partners.
