Prostitution Policy

The New York Times’ “Room for Debate” op-ed series turned its focus this week to the so-called Anti-Prostitution Loyalty Oath, which requires foreign organizations to “have a policy explicitly opposing prostitution” in order to receive HIV/AIDS US government funding.

Some experts contend that the oath further stigmatizes sex workers and prevents resources from reaching high-risk populations. Others maintain that discarding the oath would amount to an endorsement of “a global multibillion dollar criminal enterprise whose inexhaustible profits rely on the exploitation of persons who are mostly female, mostly poor and mostly of color.”
