Bolivian Sex Workers on Hunger Strike

Sex workers in the Bolivian city of El Alto have launched a hunger strike in efforts to bring an end to a month-long doctor's strike, which has resulted in the closure of public hospitals across the country that the workers rely on for health care. Normally, the workers receive weekly check-ups and STD testing at public hospitals and clinics.
