The multi-city cross-sectional survey in 956 female SWs from seven EU countries collected behavioural (85-items interview) and epidemiological (HIV, Syphilis,HCV,HBV)data between March 2011 and February 2012. Participants were recruited in indoor, outdoor and IDU sex works scenes. The findings outlined multiple risks: About 38% of the SWs had IDU experience, 60% lacked a health insurance. 59% had had an HIV test in the past year, but STI/sexual health services were hardly utilised.
