dc.description.abstractPurpose: The study aimed at identifying the demographic characteristics for FSWs associated with uptake of HIV and AIDS combined prevention strategies in Nakuru County. Methods: The study adopted a descriptive cross sectional research design. A sample size of 336 FSWs was reached through Snowballing. Quantitative data was collected using questionnaires and qualitative data was collected using interviews through FGDs with 8 purposefully selected participants. Data was analyzed descriptively to produce percentages and frequencies which were presented in tables and figures. Chi-square test of association and binary multivariate logistic regression analysis was used to establish relationship between independent and dependent variables. Results: Tertiary level of education (AOR: 5.59; 95% CI: 1.43-21.88; p: 0.013) and long duration in sex work (AOR: 3.83; 95% CI: 1.48-9.87; p: 0.006) increases likelihood of uptake of HIV and AIDS combined prevention strategies. Recommendations: The study recommends educating FSWs constantly as they start engaging in sex work on HIV and AIDS combined prevention strategies, HIV and AIDs risks and positive behavior change, overcoming barriers so as to utilize HIV and AIDS combined prevention strategies.en_US
