This article, by Rathi Ramathnathan from APNSW, who is on the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board as an NGO delegate, is targeted to pressure States like Australia to carry on steps to decriminalise and recognise sex work as an occupation. 

Rathi writes on the benefits of decriminalising sex work, in response to recent debates that connect trafficking to migration and sex work. 

The article outlines the adverse impacts of criminalising sex work and problems associated with trafficking definitions, which conflate voluntary adult sex work with coerced human trafficking and the sexual exploitation of minors.
