Legalized prostitution to stop the spread of AIDS?

AIDS experts during an AIDS conference recently held in Australia suggested that legalizing prostitution could stop the spread of HIV AIDS.

If prostitution is legalized and recognized by government, prostitutes can avail of government services and demand rights to protect themselves from sexually transmitted infections.  A prostitute can demand from a client to use a condom and refuse if he does not.

However womens group raised the issue that women prostitutes are always at a disadvantage in such situations.  They are easily manipulated and abused.  This has also some moral implications especially in Philippines which is a Christian country.
