Sex Workers Seek HIV Prevention

Lancet medical journal, argues that achieving an AIDS-free generation will not be possible unless the human rights of sex workers is recognised

The new series of the Lancet medical journal, argues that achieving an AIDS-free generation will not be possible unless the rights of sex workers are recognised. 

Researchers state that sex workers face violence and discrimination and are not able to access the care, treatment and prevention measures they need. 

The series presented at the 20th International AIDS Conference in Australia, shows that people who sell sex - whether in high or low income countries - are faced with an inconsistent risk and burden of HIV, much of the problem, the authors say, has to do with ‘repressive and discriminatory law, policy and practice.’
