New Resources: Timeline and Policy Brief on Prostitution Gag Rule
- Jodi Jacobson
This week in a friend-of-the-court brief the Center for Health and Gender
Equity joined twenty-one other organizations deeply concerned that the
"prostitution loyalty oath" in U.S. global aids policy undermines effective
programming. In conjunction CHANGE is releasing two new resources below.
Brief: Implications of U.S. Policy Restrictions on Programs Aimed at
Commercial Sex Workers and Victims of Trafficking Worldwide:
A new CHANGE policy brief outlines the legal origins and program
implications of restrictions on organizations working with commercial sex
workers and victims of trafficking worldwide. The brief outlines the ways
in which requirements within U.S. global AIDS and anti-trafficking policy
violate public health and human rights norms and threaten to undermine HIV
and human trafficking prevention efforts.
Application of the "Prostitution Loyalty Oath" in U.S. Global AIDS Policy
CHANGE also has published a timeline outlining the passage of laws,
promulgation of regulations, and subsequent policy guidance applying the
anti-prostitution loyalty oath to U.S. and foreign NGOs receiving U.S.
global AIDS funding.
You will find full information on the "prostitution loyalty oath," including
two lawsuits, at www.genderhealth.org/loyaltyoathsuit.php.
With best wishes,
Jodi L. Jacobson
