  1. aRefers to adjusted odds ratio of length of sex work in the current location to HIV-related knowledge, HIV-related behaviour and access to preventive intervention services. HIV-related knowledge, HIV-related behaviour, and access to preventive intervention were input into the logistic regression model as dependent variables respectively. The length of sex work in current location was used as independent variable. Current age, type of working venues, marital status, nationality, years of education, the total duration of sex work, age when first engaged in commercial sex work, and average charge per sex transaction were used as covariates for adjustment, and adjusted OR were calculated
