Prostitution in Togo is illegal and punishable for up to 5 to 10 years. There are reports of brothels[1] and prostitutes working in various parts of Lomé, including Décor and Kodjoviakope (near Aflao across the Ghanaian border). The nationalities of the prostitutes include Togolese as well as Nigerians, Liberians, Ghanaians and Ivorian nationals. It is not uncommon for prostitutes travel between Toga and neighbouring countries to find work.[2]

Human rights concerns[edit]

In the 2000s concerns were raised internationally about child prostitution in Togo.[3] Togolese law explicitly prohibits the sexual exploitation of children and child prostitution, although it is not effectively enforced.[4] NGO organizations such as UNICEF have intervened to try to get child prostitutes off the streets.[5] There are also reports of women being trafficked for prostitution.[4]
