The third study was conducted among sex workers operating at truckstops in the Kwa Zulu-Natal Midlands between August 1996 and March 1997.Of the 145 sex workers that participated in the survey, 50.3% were HIV positive.Kerry Mangold, a senior technical adviser at SANAC, said there had been “other small or local studies and [testing] data” which showed an HIV prevalence of 60% or more.However, “the limited number of studies to confirm this, the small sample sizes and restricted geographic focus of the studies to date” meant that they weren’t the “most accurate and statistically sound”. It stands to reason that a study done in 1996 could yield very different results if conducted in 2015.According to Venter: “We will never get accurate data.Sex workers have got a raw deal in terms of their legal, occupational and social place. The studies that have been published focused on very specific geographic areas and relied on small sample sizes.For example, it was unlikely that the 2005 Durban survey – which focussed on 775 high-risk women (not all of whom could be described as sex workers) – would be representative of all female sex workers. “We don’t really know,” says Leigh Johnson, an actuary and epidemiologist at University of Cape Town’s Centre for Actuarial Research.“We know that HIV prevalence in the general population varies markedly by geography, sex, age group and urban and rural areas,” Reid said. “It’s hard to say what the HIV prevalence level is in sex workers because we don’t have a nationally representative survey.” Johnson is a member of the Actuarial Society of South Africa (ASSA) and has served on the organisation’s Aids Committee.
The small sample sizes and the limited areas in which the surveys were conducted mean that they cannot be generalised to make the claim that 60% of sex workers in South Africa are HIV positive, Dr Alasdair Reid, a Senior Strategic Interventions Adviser at UNAids told Africa Check.
