Cases of HIV/AIDS in Indonesia continue to increase each year, including in the province of Central Java. One area that has a high HIV/AIDS case is Batang. This region has a lot of localization as a place for risk of HIV/AIDS transmission. In the past year in Batang 75 new cases of HIV/AIDS have been found and 10 people have died. This case occurs a lot in female sex workers (FSW). Banyuputih District is the region with the highest HIV/AIDS cases in Batang. This is presumably because the area has the most localization sites in Batang. Analysis of the prevention behavior of HIV/AIDS transmission in FSW and its determinants is very necessary. The Health Belief Model (HBM) was adopted to be able to describe the behavior. This study was a descriptive analytic study with a cross sectional design. The population of this study is all female sex workers in the Banyuputih localization. This research uses total sampling technique. Data analysis was conducted to determine the factors that influence the behavior of prevention of HIV/AIDS transmission carried out by high-risk populations in localization with Chi- square test. The results showed that perceptions of Susceptibility, perceptions of Severity, perception of benefits, perceptions of barrier, influenced the prevention behavior of HIV/AIDS transmission.
