Pepfar Anti Prostitution Pledge

Could there be anything more absurd than this the new Pepfar regulatory rule that  allows “affiliated entities, including a separate part of the organization receiving federal funds to conduct actions in support of prostitution or sex trafficking Feminist groups and anti-human trafficking leaders in Congress raised the concern by stating that they should not “be in the business of funding organizations that support prostitution or sex trafficking.” ( see

Is the fact that no NGO or sex worker organisation in the history of the universe has ever conducted actions in support of sex trafficking is an inconvenient truth in the fact free zone of US policy on sex work ?  If anyone can provide evidence of an action in support of trafficking please let us know.

    Wow – yes I’ve always thought it absurd for them to think these orgs would be trafficking anyway. I think they should evaluate the extent to which the provision affected trafficking – seeing as that was the aim, Do you have a link to the new provision that you mention in the blog post?
