Abstract

Determinants associated with high-risk sexual behaviors were investigated in 1,133 sexually active women in Bogota, Colombia. A self-administered questionnaire was completed by two groups of women: 721 representing the general population (GP), and 412 commercial sex workers (CSWs), High-risk sexualbehaviors for HIV/AIDS were evident in both groups. Nevertheless, consistent condom use was reported by only 6% of the GP soup, as compared to 67% ofthe CSWs. Failure to recognize high-risk routes fur HIV infection was indicated in 69% of the GP women for anal sex, and by the majority of both groups fur intercourse during menses (56% GP women and 54% CSWs). Multivariate analysis revealed that education level, actual age, and age of first sex experience were significant predictors of high-risk sexual practices. The necessity for educational programs regarding high-risk sexual practices and risk of HIV/AIDS is evident fur HIV/AIDS prevention.
