Child Prostitution in Brazil

Three posts have gone up on this blog over the past several weeks regarding the issue of the sex trade in Brazil as it involves child prostitution. For ease of reference I'm listing them out here. I've also included above the complete BBC video about underage sex workers that I referenced in one of the posts.
There are other regions of the world where this issue is perhaps far larger in terms of scale than it is in Brazil, but it is one of the social and moral battles being fought. Crack addiction drives many to prostitution, as does poverty. Education, drug rehabilitation treatment and social work with families are the means to recovery and prevention.
