Knowledge Of Sexually Transmitted Infections And Risky Practices Among Female Alcohol Brewers And Sellers In Ibadan North East Local Government Area

ABSTRACT

Studies have shown that there is an increasing prevalence of high-risk sexual practices among alcohol users which can lead to Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs). In Nigeria, knowledge relating to STIs, alcohol use and sexual practices among female alcohol handlers is sparse. The study was therefore aimed at assessing the knowledge of STIs, sexual practices and alcohol use among this category of women in Ibadan North-East Local Government Area (LGA). The study was a cross-sectional survey of female alcohol brewers and sellers in Ibadan North-East LGA. All the consenting 374 females aged 20 years and above, identified through leaders of the local brewers and bar owners associations were interviewed. A validated semistructured questionnaire which included a 21-point knowledge scale was used to measure respondents‟ STI knowledge. Risky practices assessed included possession of multiple sexual partners, inconsistent condom use and alcohol use before sexual intercourse. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, Chi-square test and ANOVA at 5% level of significance.
