The focus of “Paying The Price” was on the harms of prostitution to both individuals and communities. A series of questions were asked to elicit views and examples of good practice on which to based the development of a coordinated strategy which would address prostitution in a way that could minimize these harms. Prevention, protection and support, and justice were the key elements considered in the consultation paper and the responses provided a significant contribution to the development of a coordinated strategy for prostitution. As there are urban myths surrounding the business practices of bankers, there are just as many misconceptions and half-truths within the annals of sex worker experiences. But amongst all of the myths about sex workers, there are also numerous misconceptions and many facts. Most of the facts about this special group usually go unnoticed or totally ignored. The fact that these workers arte on the front line for some of societies most brutal, and often times most henious occurrences, it would stand to reason that the first lines of defence would be a very accommodating entity in the prevision of safety and protection. Most of these sex workers pursue their trade, either out of financial necessity to support their children and some must work on a daily basis either to satisfy the quota of a pimp, or support a drug habit or both. There are probably more reasons why any given sex worker decided to ply her attributes on this manner, then there are sex workers. However, the deep seated reasons are rarely considered and only occasionally addressed...
with given and incident or the incidence. Sex workers tend not to trust the police and
have a disdain for most health care workers.
There is no question that sex workers can trigger an all out catastrophic increase in
the HIV/AIDS debacle, and there is also no question that they should be closely
monitored by health care professionals to assure that the general public is not adversely
affected by their misdeeds. Of course there is no way you can protest the pusher who
insists on sex without a condom, as well you can not gauge the sex worker who agrees to
participate in spite of, because her needs must be met. These sets of circumstances create
a bad situation which can have long term and far reaching negative impacts upon the
health and well-being among members of the general population. Consequently, there has
become a heightened interest in the possible perpetrators of a mass eperdermic.Albeit this
is the reality behind any stratagem which the health care networks might adopt and seek
to implement, one must never forget that the workers even though they do what they do,
all of the front line health care employees must bring a strong sense of sensitivity to the
situation The healthcare providers must sell the idea that they are interested in the
individual first and the malady second. Since health care workers as a group, have not
been immersed with first hand experience, there will often be times when they can not
fully relate to the many variations of psychological and sociological voids which must be
addressed before the vaccination can be administered.
