- The purpose of this study is to analyze the correlation between the New Prostitution Acts and the continuous in crease in the numbers of sexually transmitted disease patients since their implementation in 2004, in addition to examining the change in the population of prostitution traders, and the trend toward new kinds of sex industries. The anti-prostitution law, which has the laudable goals of protecting sexual morality and human rights, also created unintended consequences, including interference with established methods of tracing sexually transmitted infections.
