This research is an attempt to understand inter- relationship between the life, work and reproductive health of the sex workers in two districts of Kerala, India. A total of 293 sex workers participated in the research. Mixed method approach was used to elicit information under the broad themes of socio-demographic, work related, clients, sexual behaviour, condom use, violence, reproductive health and mental health status issues from the sexworkers. Data analysis is carried out using univariate and multivariate statistical techniques and the results are substantiated with qualitative information.
