Sex Worker’s Health Needs Not Being Met June 15, 2007

Posted by Winter in sex industry.

According to research from Cardiff University.

Health services are failing to provide adequate care for women working in prostitution, according to new research by Cardiff University.

A study led by Dr Nikki Jeal of the School of Medicine found striking differences in the health needs of parlour-based prostitutes when compared with street-based prostitutes, having implications for the content and delivery of health services.

Dr Jeal said: “This group of women have high health risks but this new research demonstrates that women selling sex are not all the same, and have different health needs according to their working environment”.

Hopefully this research will result in action.

But, really, “women selling sex are not all the same”? Well duh! No wonder they’re not getting their needs met if the service providers assume all sex workers are the same.
