Info & links for sex workers
Since March, it is forbidden to do sex work in the Netherlands. Most sex workers do not have access to financial government support.
On the website of SekswerkExpertise, you can find a lot of information on sex work and the pandemic. Information is available in English, Spanish, Romanian and Hungarian.
The website prostitutie.nl offers information by health organisations.
