Local autonomy, national policy and global imperatives : sex work and HIV/AIDS in Cebu City, Philippines

Auteur :
LAW, L.

Description :
The paper contributes to cultural critiques of AIDS prevention policies through examining debates about mandatory HIV blood screening for women in Cebu City's sex industry during 1993. These debates were inspired by the Department of Health policy to eliminate mandatory blood screening on the grounds that it was expensive and ineffectual in slowing the spread of HIV. The paper highlights how various socio-spatial scales helped to constitute Cebu's response to mandatory testing, while at the same time reproducing an exclusionary discourse which silenced the voices of women in Cebu's sex industry.
