[Evidence-based Practice Session - Paper or Poster Presentation] The sex trade in India is underestimated and affects numerous women in Imphal, Manipur. Several hospitals and health clinics exist in Manipur, India; however, are these women able to access health care givers and have adequate health care? The significance of this question is that, according to The Harvard International Review, India has the largest HIV population in the world and the BMC International Health and Human Rights state that Manipur is one of two northeast states with the highest prevalence in India. The Indian government in 2005 acknowledged these growing HIV-AID statistics and reconstructed the health care system to increase economic and social development through initiating the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM). The object of this poster is to identify the most significant health concerns and to identify those services that are effective in treating them in women who are or have been in the sex trade in Imphal, Manipur. Nurses can use this information world wide to become empathetic towards the difficulty in getting health care and methods to increase self-efficacy in this group of women.
