SFH Zambia aims to decrease prevalence of HIV in Zambia by undertaking activities such as condom social marketing through behaviour change communications. Tracking surveys serve as tools to inform programming by routinely collecting data from cross-sections of populations at risk for HIV/AIDS and other adverse health outcomes. This survey among female sex workers (FSW) aimed to (i) identify and describe segments of FSW in terms of consistent condom use with all partners, (ii) gain an understanding of knowledge, attitudes and HIV/AIDS risk behaviour among FSW and (iii) use study data to design a social marketing and behaviour change communication campaign for HIV/AIDS risk reduction among FSWs. The study is integral to the social marketing plan and strategic plan of SFH Zambia. The study was carried out among female sex workers in selected high risk places in Zambia. The following high risk places were included in the study: Chipata, Livingston, Lusaka and Nchelenge. Prior to the survey, mapping of the sites was conducted to identify locations where FSWs meet their clients. FSWs were recruited during the times they were at work. Using the time-location approach, interviewers attempted to recruit all the FSWs found in the popular night spots such as bars, restaurants and night clubs between 20:00 hours and 24:00 hours. The questionnaire covered demographic information, sexual behaviour, condom use, OAM determinants, and exposure to interventions. Four point Likert scales were used to provide a richer measure of OAM determinants. The measures for these variables were constructed based on prior research and were included in the analysis after conducting a reliability and validity check. Logistic regression analyses were performed to identify significant determinants of condom use. Simple frequencies were run on descriptive data to complete the monitoring table.
