Authors: Ara, Zinat
Keywords: BANGLADESH, COMMERCIAL SEX WORKERS, HEALTH RIGHTS,HUMAN RIGHTS, STD, HIV/AIDS, NGOs

Abstract: As a marginalized group with no legal recognition and inadequate protection, the rights of commercial sex workers in Bangladesh are often violated. As commercial sex work has a detrimental impact on women's health, this paper examines the health problems and diseases that commercial sex workers suffer from, the assistance and services available to them and their ability to access them. Analyzing these issues through focus group discussions and interviews, the paper identifies causes of the violation and denial of access to health rights for commercial sex workers. The paper recommends measures the various stakeholders need to take in order to improve the situation of the girls and women who are trapped in a heartless and abusive environment without economic or social support.
