Cooper K, Kilvington J, Day S, Ziersch A, Ward Het al., 2001, HIV prevention and sexual health services for sex workers in the UK, Health Education Journal, Vol: 60, Pages: 26-34, ISSN: 0017-8969

Background Sex workers were targeted for HIV prevention work from the mid-1980s and budgets were allocated for services and projects with a specific component of HIV prevention. We look at changing trends in service provision in the UK during the 1990s. Methods Two surveys of services for sex workers were conducted: one in 1995 and the other in 1999. We documented different approaches to health promotion through questionnaire and telephone interview at these two points in time, as well as associated funding and support. Results Eighty-one services were identified in 1995 and 124 in 1999. There was an increase in services for young people and those based in genitourinary medicine clinics. Most services conducted outreach and shared a common approach to health promotion, based on harm minimisation. Funding did not change significantly and the major source of support continued to be local health authorities. Conclusion Despite the fact that sex workers are no longer a general priority for HIV prevention work, services have proved to be surprisingly resilient. Projects have developed a holistic approach, linking community intervention to specific health promotion, a model that may prove useful for new government initiatives in relation to health inequalities and social exclusion.

Day S, Ward H, 1997, Sex workers and the control of sexually transmitted disease, Genitourinary Medicine, Vol: 73, Pages: 161-168, ISSN: 0266-4348

Objectives: To describe and assess measures to control sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) among sex workers and their partners. Methods: A review of medical, historical and social literature, focusing on selected cases. Results: Measures to control disease in sex workers today are often prompted by concerns about HIV transmission. However, the literature shows that prostitution varies from one place and time to another, together with the risk of sexually transmitted disease. A broad social definition of prostitution rather than a narrow reference to levels of sexual activity is important for effective disease control, as an understanding of the relation between social disadvantage and sexual activity enables the provision of occupational services that sex workers actually want and use. Social prejudice and legal sanctions cause some sex workers and their partners to avoid even the most appropriate and accessible specialist services. Therefore targeted programmes can only complement, and not replace, general measures to control STDs, which are developed for other social groups or the local population as a whole. Conclusions: Sex workers and sex work differ from one place to another and so a single model for STD control is inappropriate. None the less, occupational health risks suggest a general need for specialist services. Where these do not compound the disadvantages that sex workers already suffer, medical services are likely to offer significant benefits in prevention, early diagnosis, and treatment of STDs. As the stigma of prostitution leads many people to remain invisible to services, a general health infrastructure and anti-discriminatory measures will be equally important to effective disease control.
