A Cross-Cultural Study in Eight Countries.
The link between alcohol use and sexual behaviour has serious implications for the health of populations particularly due to the advent of HIV infection. WHO coordinated a multi-country study to identify factors related to risky sexual behaviour among alcohol users in diverse cultural settings. The countries involved included: Belarus, India, Mexico, Kenya, Romania, the Russian Federation, South Africa and Zambia. The results of the study presented in this report are likely to be useful to respond in specific and appropriate ways to the problem of alcohol use and sexual risk behaviour.
