There are over 133,675 female sex workers in Kenya, with significant regional variations from a high of 29,494 in Nairobi to a low of 2,030 in the northeast, according to estimates by the ministry of Health.

At least three in 10 female sex workers across the 47 counties are infected with HIV, according to the National Aids Control Council.
