The current paper provides an overview of how prostitution has changed from ancient ages till now. It provides a brief typology of the ancient and the current era. It provides a theoretical frame work to understand how prostitution has evolved in the society from ancient ages till now. The paper also highlights the socioeconomic aspect of sex work, need for rehabilitation programs and legal aspects to tackle the problems associated with it. This paper may act as a quick reference for those interested in studying the various psychosocial aspects of sex work.
It’s a matter of great pride for me that All India Association of Medical Social Work Professionals is launching first issue of “Indian Journal of Health Social Work” on the auspicious occasion of 6th Annual National Conference of AIAMSWP, 2019.
