The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Health of Women in Prostitution.

Parriott, Ruth.

Women used in prostitution run considerable risk of contracting HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases, yet little is known about their health and health care needs. This 1994 project interviewed sixty-eight prostituted women about their health problems and experiences in the health care system. The study showed that these women are exposed to serious physical and emotional health risks every day. In fact, drug abuse and violence were present in each woman's life and seem to be inextricably linked with the health challenge of prostituted women.
