‘Science Speaks’ Discusses Research On Sex Work-Related Laws Presented At AIDS 2018

IDSA’s “Science Speaks”: AIDS 2018: Laws meant to end demand for sex work increases workers’ HIV risks, researchers say
Reporting from the 22nd International AIDS Conference in Amsterdam, Rabita Aziz, writer at “Science Speaks” and senior global health policy specialist at IDSA, discusses research presented at the conference that shows “[s]ex work criminalization laws and so-called ‘end demand’ policies — laws attempting to abolish sex work by making it a crime to pay for sex services — increase marginalization, stigmatization, discrimination, and subsequently reduce access to health services and increase risks for HIV infection” (7/26).
