Prostitution prevalent near construction sites


There are numerous prostitution incidents reported near both public and private construction sites.

DPWH Sec. Rogelio Singson received a report about the escalating number of prostitution incidents near construction sites, not only of government's project, but also of private sector.

Brothel, karaoke bar and those eatery selling makeshift pleasures are existing and growing, DPWH said.

The clients or customers of these mentioned establishments are some construction workers.

Consequently, DPWH Committee on Gender and Development (COGAD) ordered all their workers on the field to enforce and follow the police against the activities connected with human trafficking.
DPWH Undersecretary and COGAD Chairperson Maria Catalina Cabral said that their office already held a focus group discussion (FGD) among the representatives of Philippine Commission on Women, International Agency Council Against Trafficking, and some civil society organizations to keep this problem under control.

Human trafficking and the prostitution of children is a significant issue in the Philippines, often controlled by organized crime syndicates. Human Trafficking in the Philippines is a crime against humanity.

In an effort to deal with the problem, the Philippines passed R.A. 9208, the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act of 2003, a penal law against human trafficking, sex tourism, sex slavery and child prostitution. In 2006, enforcement was reported to be inconsistent.
