"The objective of this paper is not to argue that lesbians/WSW are at the same risk as their heterosexual counterparts, but to acknowledge that there is significant risk of HIV, other STIs and other health disparities for lesbians."

This publication seeks to clarify confusion regarding risk to lesbians and women who have sex with women (WSW) in order to create visibility for this marginalized subpopulation of women.
