Most sex workers initiated sex work before they first smoked crack.

The pooled estimate of HIV prevalence was 17.3 % (95 % CI 13.5-21.9 %); however, the prevalence of HIV across individual studies varied considerably (ranging from 0.3 to 32 %) and statistical heterogeneity was substantial (I(2) = 0.89, Q = 123; p ABSTRACT: Objective: Cocaine use and mental health disorders have both been separately identified as risk factors for blood borne virus infection. Researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., said that the study was designed to build on previous research involving more than 1,200 men and women admitted to a three-week outpatient pain treatment program conducted by the Mayo Pain Rehabilitation Center.The main findings of the study were that patient gender could be a predictor of differences in functional status of those undergoing treatment for chronic pain. Michael Hooten indicated that continuing functional impairment in men could also be due to work activities and/or other poorly understood societal factors.Conclusions:: Interventions to prevent HIV/STD transmission among crack‐smoking sex workers are urgently needed.ABSTRACT: Although female sex workers are known to be vulnerable to HIV infection, little is known about the epidemiology of HIV infection among this high-risk population in the United States.

Conclusions:: Interventions to prevent HIV/STD transmission among crack‐smoking sex workers are urgently needed.

ABSTRACT: Although female sex workers are known to be vulnerable to HIV infection, little is known about the epidemiology of HIV infection among this high-risk population in the United States.

Study Goals:: To examine the prevalence of risky sexual behaviors and HIV and STD in a large sample of streetrecruited crack‐smoking sex workers.
