Background: Children of commercial sex workers (CSW) are deprived from almost all the rights of the society. More attention is paid to the CSWs but their children are neglected. This study was conducted to estimate the morbidity and psychosocial behaviour of children of CSWs and their needs.
Methods: A community-based cross-sectional study was conducted.
The children of female sex workers inhabit two separate worlds. “Your mother is bad. The company she keeps is bad. Her behaviour is bad”: this is the child’s first world; while the other is: “My Mother”.
