Trafficking, sex work, and HIV: efforts to resolve conflicts

Steen, Richard; Jana, Smarajit; Reza-Paul, Sushena; u. a.: Trafficking, sex work, and HIV: efforts to resolve conflicts, in: The Lancet, 2014
From the article:

Trafficking occurs in sex work as it does in other types of labour. However, the issue of trafficking in sex work has been singled out, its scale and potential for harm frequently mis-stated or exaggerated to bolster antiprostitution arguments, inflame public opinion, and justify repressive and counterproductive police action.1234 and 5 Conflation of sex work with trafficking leads not only to difficulties with definition and harm to sex workers on the ground, but also to conflicts that undermine HIV prevention.
