Abstract Behavioral surveillance data of 1422 sexually active female injecting drug users (IDU) in Sichuan China were analyzed. The prevalence of syringe-sharing was 43.5\%. Respectively, 59.0\%, 38.5\% and 55.7\% had regular, non-regular, and commercial sex-partner (RP, NRP, and CSP); 44.3\% had multiple types of sex partners; 23.6 and 36.2\% of those with RP had NRP and CSP. The prevalence of unprotected sex (last episode) with RP, NRP and CSP were respectively 75.4\%, 50.7\% and 39.3\%; these three variables were associated with each other and with syringe sharing (univariate OR = 1.58-30.13). About 85\% of the participants had attempted quitting drug use; the experience was not associated with condom use. HIV voluntary counseling and testing was associated with lower likelihood of unprotected sex with RP, NRP and CSP (multivariate OR= 0.44-0.60); the coverage was only 40.7\%. Potential bridging of HIV transmission from IDU to non-IDU populations is a serious concern. This article was published in AIDS Behav and referenced in Journal of AIDS & Clinical Research
