RIBEIRO, Moneda Oliveira and DIAS, Aretuzza de Fátima. Child-juvenile prostitution: a systematic literature review. Rev. esc. enferm. USP [online]. 2009, vol.43, n.2, pp. 465-471. ISSN 0080-6234. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0080-62342009000200029.
The purpose of this study was to understand how infant-juvenile prostitution is being explained by researchers through an extensive bibliographical survey on national and international scientific sources. It was possible to access 20 references in full text form, which were analyzed according to the Content Analysis method. The analysis consisted in answering how infant-juvenile prostitution is represented by the author in relation to the concepts, causes, effects and solutions described in the references. It was found that the authors approached the subject as a way of survival, resulting from an unequal society, adult-centered and male chauvinist causing mental and physical diseases in children.
