In 1988 the New Zealand Prostitutes Collective (NZPC) signed a contract with the Ministry of Health to provide a range of services to sex workers, focused on HIV/AIDS prevention.

However, by 1991, the NZPC is fed up with police raids that negatively impact sex workers, and indicates to the Ministry of Health that they will be unable to continue contracting with the Ministry unless an interdepartmental committee is established to investigate repealing the laws against sex work.
