The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) will be leading the efforts of the UN system in the area of female sex work to intensify the HIV/AIDS response towards this
vulnerable group. In this sense, UNFPA will advocate for the elimination of violence against female sex workers (FSW) and initiate new programmes and services that will empower FSW and meet their sexual reproductive health needs.In the interaction programme on people in vulnerable occupation and HIV/AIDS co-organised by UNFPA, UNAIDS - the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS and sex worker groups, FSW
networks representatives shared how women are compelled to practice sex work and condemned the NGOs, government and civil society for denying that discriminatory practices exist as the circumstances that lead them to pick up this profession. They also shared stories of incidents in which women have been physically and sexually abused by clients and also by security personnel. Present at the event, high level
representatives of Nepal Police acknowledged the perpetration of uniformed personnel on female sex workers, but stated that, as a result of a dedicated HIV/AIDS Strategy and Operational Plan of Nepal Police and corresponding activities, the situation was improving
