“…Although no case of HIV infection was observed, the important burden of STI indicates that women in Pacoti, and presumably elsewhere in rural Brazil, are at high risk along with the current spread of the AIDS epidemic towards smaller municipalities, lower income groups and women (Fonseca et al 2000(Fonseca et al , 2003. Therefore, our study calls for urgent control measures against STI in rural areas, including improved diagnostic and treatment facilities, and appropriate case management.…”
