Prostitution in Ivory Coast
In Côte d'Ivoire, prostitution itself (exchanging sex for money) is legal, but associated activities, such as soliciting, pandering or running brothels, are illegal. The civil war has left many women in need for wages, so some have resorted to prostitution, as there is high unemployment.
Sex Tourism is also a problem in the Ivory Coast.
