ABSTRACT: Heterosexual contact is the most common mode of transmission of HIV infection in India and Commercial Sex Workers (CSWs) are known to be the most common source of this infection. Most Metropolitan cities in India, like Bombay and Madras have reported very high and increasing rates of HIV infection among 2CSWs. Till 1995, reports in Calcutta showed almost a steady prevalence (less than 2 percent) of this infection amongst CSWs. This study, however, reveals that HIV infection amongst CSWs in Calcutta is also high (12.9 percent).
