There are errors in Tables 3 and 4, and corresponding errors in the Results section under the subheading “Factors correlated with HIV infection of MSWs and ncMSM.” Please see the corrected Tables 3 and 4 here.

The last sentence of the first paragraph of the Results section under the subheading “Factors correlated with HIV infection of MSWs and ncMSM” should be: For ncMSM, syphilis infection (OR = 5.6; 95%CI: 3.3–9.6), receiving a lower education (Junior high school or less) (OR = 2.6; 95%CI: 1.4–4.7) and first sex with male partner (OR = 2.1; 95%CI: 1.3–3.4) were associated with HIV-positivity. Previous HIV testing (OR = 0.4; 95%CI: 0.2–0.6) and younger in age (<20) (OR = 0.6; 95%CI: 0.4–0.9) were negatively associated with HIV infection.

The last sentence of the second paragraph of the Results section under the subheading “Factors correlated with HIV infection of MSWs and ncMSM” should be: Syphilis infection (aOR = 5.9; 95%CI: 3.2–10.9), having a lower education (Junior high school or less) (aOR = 2.1; 95%CI: 1.0–4.2) and first sex with male partner (aOR = 2.1; 95% CI: 1.2–3.9) were positively associated with HIV infection in ncMSM, but having had an HIV test (aOR = 0.4; 95%CI: 0.2–0.7) was a protective factor.

The first sentence of the third paragraph of the Results section under the subheading “Factors correlated with HIV infection of MSWs and ncMSM” should be: In logistic regression analyses evaluating the risk factors for combined HIV infection (Table 4), syphilis infection, reporting ever having being diagnosed with STIs, people who are bisexual, age at sex debut (≥26) and being married were associated with HIV-positivity. After controlling for MSM type, syphilis infection and people who are bisexual were associated with an increased HIV infection.
