AIDS Anal Afr. 1995 Mar-Apr;5(2):9.

"Mama Condom" preaches safe-sex at a truck-stop.

[No authors listed]



Efforts to stop the spread of AIDS at a small town which provides food, lodging, and sex for truck drivers on the highway from Uganda through Tanzania to Burundi center on using prostitute peer educators. The trained peer educators visit guest houses and distribute approximately 300 condoms each week and talk to the prostitutes about their problems with clients. They report that some of the clients try to slip the condoms off when the woman is not looking. Also, some of the prostitutes resist using the condoms. The peer educators, who have seen many deaths from AIDS, counsel the prostitutes to refuse sex without a condom.
