Any criminalisation of sex work pushes sex workers underground and in consequence, creates dangerous and hard working conditions for them. Sex workers will avoid going to the police to report being victims of crime and will be more at risk of violence, exploitation and HIV. Criminalisation also strengthens the stigma on sex workers and increases social exclusion, which both are affecting the mental health of sex workers.
