oral risk in Africa

It seems that when you have oral sex with someone from Africa , the risk is multiplying. Is oral still a low risk  almost zero even with African Commercial sex worker?

This discussion is related to possible Hiv infection.

The risk of having oral sex in Africa is no different than in the US. It's not a risk.

Thanks for your reply.The doctors on this forum are saying that African sex workers(20% with HIV) are probably having higher viral loads because of not having access to medication ,so the same rule about oral sex does  not apply to everybody,  for instance to  North America or Europe where there is a medical treatment available.
