Prostitution in Mozambique first became a major issue for the country in the mid-1990s when UN peacekeepers were accused of soliciting child prostitutes.[1][2]

In recent years prostitutes from Zimbabwe have traveled to Mozambique to make money near the gold mines in exchange for money or food due to mass unemployment of their homeland.Prostitution is the principal factor of the diffusion of AIDS.[3][4][5]
