Prostitution in Tajikistan
Prostitution in Tajikistan is rife and illegal within the country since the collapse of the Soviet Union. In practice, arrested prostitutes are assessed a nominal fine and released, while those purchasing sex are prosecuted. The government of Tajikistan is making efforts to curb the crime since it is linked to human trafficking.
