Prostitution in Guyana is illegal.[1]

Prostitution continues to receive greater public attention due to the high incidence of HIV/AIDS among prostitutes.[1]

The law prohibits all forms of trafficking in persons. Penalties for trafficking include three years to life imprisonment, forfeiture of property, and full restitution to the victims.
