Amnesty International’s report on the human rights of sex workers in Papua New Guinea. This report documents violence against sex workers committed by police officers, clients, and members of sex workers’ families and communities. These crimes are rarely reported or investigated. Sex workers also experience high levels of stigma  and discrimination, especially in accessing health care. Gender inequality is a significant factor contributing to violence.
