Well, harm reduction for prostitutes in general will help them regardless if the prostitution is voluntary or forced. I don't know much about trafficking, but it is true that many prostitutes are coerced by financial means. They come from the countryside to the city, turn to prostitution. The pimps give them housing and money equivalent to a normal wage, and they become legal residents. But at the same time, they are monitored constantly (so as not to work overtime and cheat the pimp) and can't leave the business until they find another job, which they rarely do. But this would be true of any other business, so the problem lies in the laws regulating workers' rights in China.|
Overseas, it is different. If they are legal residents, they can leave anytime, unless there is a threat to them. Then they should go to the police, of course, but they may not be aware of their rights. And sometimes, these people are abandoned by the authorities anyway, because of lack of funding, different priorities, whatever.
And some people do agree to become indentured servants (prostitution or otherwise) to pay off for the opportunity to come to a Western country. I am not sure that is coercion; it is more like a contract that would be illegal in the West.
