Prostitution: Pathways, Problems and Prevention

Researchers are helping to find solutions to prostitution and its violent, sometimes deadly, repercussions and associated problems such as neighborhood blight, drug abuse and spread of infectious disease.

Policymakers and law enforcement officials use the research to:

  • Set up intervention programs for prostitutes.
  • Improve homicide investigations.
  • Examine the relative costs and benefits of focusing on arresting prostitutes versus arresting their "clients."
