Legalize Prostitution To Reduce Hiv Says Nigerian Sex Workers Association.

Nigerian Sex Workers Association told the Federal Government of Nigeria to legalize prostitution in the country to help reduce the spread of HIV. The association said that HIV infection is on the increase due to the inability of Government to legalize prostitution as well as stop treating prostitution as crime.

The National Coordinator of the Association, Miss Amaka Enemo,in Abuja on Wednesday during the press interview with journalist after the presentation of a report titled, ‘’Understanding the High Risk of Urban Sexual Network in Nigeria’’, called the law enforcement agents, that always harass sex workers in one direction and turn around to demand same sex without using condom to desist from it.

Ms Amaka Enemo stated that her active role in gathering information from National Agency for the control of Aids, the oversea institutions and World bank revealed that legalizing prostitution by Federal Government is the only way to reduce HIV in Nigeria as well as strict adherence to using condom.
