Reducing the Risk of HIV/AIDS among Female Sex Workers in India

How did the government of India tailor its HIV/AIDS program to the needs of one particularly high-risk group—female sex workers—and effectively deliver services? In two states hard hit by the epidemic, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, the government’s AIDS program included specific targeted interventions: outreach, condom promotion and distribution, clinical services, and community mobilization and social support.
