Abstract  Objective: To assess the acceptability of pre-exposure prophylaxis (Pr-EP) among the female sex workers in Xinjiang.
Methods: A volunteer-based,anonymous and one-to-one questionnaire survey was conducted in 762 female sex workers (FSW) in Urumqi and Kelamayi of Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.
Results: Among 762 FSW surveyed,673 (88.32%) was not aware of pre-exposure prophylaxis with an awareness rate of 11.55%.The awareness rate of FSWs working in high-end entertainment venues was higher than that of FSWs working in medium-low end entertainment venues(P<0.001).Five hundred and twenty eight FSWs (69.29%) were willing to take Pr-EP,145 (19.03%) were unwilling to take the medicine and 89 (11.68%) were possible to use the Pr-EP.There was no significant difference in willingness of using Pr-EP among FSWs working in high and medium-low end entertainment venuew(P=0.285).The subjects who were willing to take Pr-EP mainly concerned of the drug security,effectiveness and cost.The main reasons for not willing to take Pr-EP were: not having risk of infecting HIV,suspecting effectiveness of Pr-EP and worrying about side effects.
Conclusions: The acceptability to use Pr-EP in female sex workers of Xinjiang is relatively high and the drug security,effectiveness and cost will influence the promotion and application of Pr-EP in the future.

新疆女性性工作者艾滋病暴露前预防用药使用意愿调查

目的:了解新疆女性性工作者(female sex workers,FSWs)对艾滋病暴露前预防用药(pre-exposure prophylaxis,Pr-EP)的使用意愿,为HIV高危人群Pr-EP的干预奠定基础。
方法:对新疆乌鲁木齐市和克拉玛依市娱乐场所自愿参加调查的FSWs进行一对一的匿名问卷调查。
结果:本次共调查了762例 FSWs,对Pr-EP有 673人(88.32%)从未听说过,88人(11.55%)听说过。在高档场所工作的FSWs对艾滋病Pr-EP听说率高于中、低档场所工作的FSWs(P<0.001)。 528人(69.29%)表示愿意服用药物,145人(19.03%)不愿意服用药物,89人(11.68%)表示很有可能会使用。高、中、低档场所工作的FSWs对Pr-EP使用意愿未见明显不同(P=0.285)。对于愿意使用Pr-EP者主要关注药物的安全性、效果和费用等;不愿意使用Pr-EP的主要原因依次为:自己没有感染艾滋病的风险、怀疑药物的效果、担心药物的副反应等。
结论:新疆FSWs对艾滋病Pr-EP的接受意愿较好,安全性、效果和费用是Pr-EP今后推广应用中的重要影响因素。
