Final Year Project

Project Title

A Qualitative Outlook into the Relationship between the Reputable and the Disreputable: To explore the Provider Bias in SRHR health-care services towards young female sex workers in Karachi, Pakistan 2021


The study explores provider bias in SRHR healthcare services towards young female sex workers in Karachi, Pakistan. It focuses on whether young female sex workers' access to Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) services through their experience with health providers, is hindered by the provider's attitude or behavior that restrict patient access and choice, in Karachi, Pakistan. Data was collected using primary research methods, to recruit four female health provider participants, from both public and private health facilities. The participants were interviewed one-on-one, in-person or on call, using an in-depth, open-ended questionnaire. Findings included five primary themes: Discrimination/No Discrimination (subtheme: Stigma and Criminalization), Sufficient/Lack of Health Provider Training and Knowledge, YFSWS' Lack of Accessibility (subtheme: Lack of Education), Guidance in Terms of Referral/Guidance in Terms of Leaving Sex Work, and Health Providers' Attitude towards Rape and Abortion. Recommendations include stigma reduction training and implementation of SRH in education curriculum.
