Mc William: "More illegal prostitution and more cases of HIV"

WILLEMSTAD - According to Member of Parliament Giselle McWilliam, the closure of the Campo Alegre brothel has led to an increase in illegal prostitution in Curaçao. According to her, there has also been an increase in the number of HIV / AIDS cases. She has sent a letter to health minister Zita Jesus-Leito.

McWilliam wants to know from the minister if the government has an action plan to address the problems.

In her letter, McWilliam relies on two foundations that report an increase in HIV / AIDS cases. There are no official figures yet. According to Mc William, it also plays a role that in recent years various undocumented women have entered Curaçao and are active in illegal prostitution in various neighborhoods.
