Commercial sex is universal around the world. In Hong Kong, one-woman brothel constitutes one main form of commercial sex establishment. The map shows the density of one-woman brothels distributed over the TPUs (tertiary planning unit, small geographic unit) in three districts – Yau Tsim Mong, Kowloon City and Shum Shui Po, using data collected by a collaborating non-governmental organisation. Locations of convenience stores are mapped to illustrate the locations of potential condom-access points. The methodology used can also be adapted to evaluate the coverage of HIV preventive interventions.
