What it measures

FSWs typically have a very high rate of partner turnover so that even occasional lapses in consistent condom use can lead to high rates of HIV trasnmission from clients to sex workers and vice versa.  Consistent condom use is probably a more critical goal in this population than in any other.  Consistent condom use is also a critical indicator to measure the success of campaigns and interventions promoting condom use in sex work.
