The SHANTUSI Project 2011
(Surveying HIV and need in the unregulated sex industry)
As part of ISCHS’s ongoing commitment to dispelling myths and stereotypes about sex work, and advocating for the health and wellbeing of sex workers, ISCHS recently published research by RMIT academic Dr James Rowe into HIV risk and prevalence in Victoria’s unregulated sex industry.
The research also provided insights into the social determinants that impact the health and wellbeing of sex workers. The research was launched on 25 May 2011, at Inner South Community Health Service’s inaugural Health and Sex Work Research Symposium.

Working Girls in Melbourne Brothels 2008
A semi structured face to face, confidential survey was conducted with 100 women from the industry, capturing both day and night shift women. The information was collated and the data clustered according to themes and differences, highlighting the experiences of women working in the industry. The results presented in this report inform the RhED team and assist future planning and the development of brothel outreach services and resources.
