Sexual Cultures and Migration in the Era of AIDS: Anthropological and Demographic Perspectives

By Gilbert Herdt | Go to book overview

widely recognized, and most commercial sex workers and their clients probably had personal experiences of STDs in the course of their daily activities. Condoms will be accepted by sex workers and their clients for protection against AIDS when the disease is in epidemic proportions in Nigeria and the campaign warning that it is becoming widespread is successful. The fact that the sex workers were asking for free condoms may well be the beginning of a recognition of the danger that the disease poses to their lives. However, a universal acceptance of condoms by sex workers will largely depend on an effective massive campaign about the use of condoms as protection against STDs and AIDS; their availability, cost, and supply. The chemists and the pharmaceutical stores have a major role to play in this regard, as they are currently doing, as the major sources of supply of contraceptives for family planning acceptors ( Caldwell, Orubuloye, Caldwell, 1992). Intervention Programmes that will bring the family planning, STDs, and AIDS workers together will go a long way in promoting condom use. This may be a crucial factor in slowing or halting the AIDS epidemic and other coitally-related diseases.
