World AIDS Day 2017: Young female sex workers in Maharashtra, India: Why they have a higher vulnerability and risk behavior for HIV

Existing evidence showed that young female sex workers (FSWs) (<25 years) have an even greater HIV vulnerability and risk behaviour than older FSWs. However, only very few studies analysed differences in HIV vulnerability and risk behaviour based on age, which is why this study compares the vulnerability and risk behaviour of young FSWs and older FSWs, by conducting a descriptive exploratory analysis of secondary age-disaggregated data from Maharashtra (south Indian state).
