No hope for HIV prevention for Indonesian sex workers

Keeping watch for policemen is a typical day for Dewi, now 29, a sex worker in Bekasi, an industrial area east of Jakarta in Indonesia.
“I live by the grace of God. I have to keep on the look out for policemen who are always looking for sex workers to arrest them,” says Dewi, who has been a sex worker since the age of 19.
Dewi works in a bar in an area that hosts big international manufacturing giants like Converse and Samsung. Every night she goes to dance with the long-distance truck drivers and factory workers who come to drink and relax after work. If they want sex, she sells that to them too.
