"Sex Worker Eviction in Tangail, Bangladesh, disrupts Asia Pacific AIDS Conference Negotiation" 25 July 2014

The 12th International Congress on AIDS in Asia and the Pacific (ICAAP) is to be held in Dhaka, Bangladesh in 2015. A boycott of this event is imminent due to eviction of 1000 sex workers and their families, totalling 2000 people, from a 200 year old brothel district in Bangladesh. Ironically the theme of the conference is women, and Key Affected Populations, which includes sex workers. The area has been raised by bulldozers and is described by local sex workers as now looking more like a desert than their fomer homes and workplaces.
