In this report, sex workers outline the impact that current legislative provisions in the criminal law are having on their health, well-being and rights. The findings and conclusions from this study are the product of in-depth focus group discussions with sex workers. In order to ensure the authenticity of the recommendations, each recommendation has been developed in direct consultation with sex workers and are presented here in their own words.

The findings from this study point to the negative impact of current laws on the abilities of sex workers to keep safe and reduce harms to their health and well-being, in line with mounting evidence from other jurisdictions where sex buyer laws are in place.
