Periodic presumptive treatment of curable STIs among sex workers: a systematic review

 Unprotected sex work remains a major driver of HIV/STI epidemics in many countries. STI treatment can lower disease burden, complications and prevalence of HIV cofactors.

The objective of this review is to assess benefits and harms of PPT among female sex workers.
