This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
The objective of this review is to evaluate the effectiveness of behavioral interventions for reducing the transmission of HIV infection among sex workers (male, female, and transgender) and their clients in low- and middle-income countries. Through this systematic review, we aim to discover if behavioral interventions such as condom use and behavior modification are effective in reducing the transmission of HIV when the interventions are delivered in sex worker settings. We will investigate what behavioral interventions to reduce risk of HIV transmission among commercial sexual workers have been tested in RCTs.
