HIV/AIDS and Sex Workers in India
AIDS is the advanced stage of HIV infection. It is disabling and incurable infection caused by HIV. As HIV progressively destroys the immune system, most people, particularly in resource constrained settings, die within a few years of the appearance of the first sighs of AIDS. Only a blood test can establish a person’s HIV status. However, this does not mean that every person who undergoes the test has AIDS. Sex workers form a diverse group of people. Hence, it is difficult to make generalizations about their behaviors and attitudes towards HIV prevention and care.
