This report was commissioned by the Women's Health Project as part of the EUROPAP Project. It follows a report from 1995 which presented an overview of female prostituion in Ireland, and the health services available to women working in prostitution, particularly with reference to HIV prevention. In this report, 86 interviews were carried out by peer interviewers with women working in prostitution. The report makes a number of recommendations regarding health services for women working in prostitution; the immediate resumption of STD screening at the Women's Health Project, the extension of the Project's opening hours and expansion of the service to the north side of Dublin city as a matter of urgency. The report also recommends a review of current legislation and the continuation and development of peer support and education.
