New Delhi: August 17, 2010
It is difficult to maintain a registry on sex workers as they move from one place to another but the government has been able to reach out to them and HIV infection among them has gone down, the Rajya Sabha was told. In a written reply to the upper house, Minister of State for Health Dinesh Trivedi said despite not maintaining a registry, they have been able to reach out to the community. Asked whether a registry for sex workers in India exists, Trivedi said that "the dynamics of sex workers operations keeps on changing". "Sex workers move from one place to another and assume different names which makes it difficult to keep a registry," he said.
