Sex Work, Violence And HIV In Asia- From Evidence To Safety
PDF File Size: 253 KB | Download   
Sex workers endure a disproportionate burden of violence, in their work and personal lives. This violence denies them rights — to equal protection under the law; to protection from torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment; and the right to the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health. Violence against sex workers has life-long and life- threatening consequences that increase HIV risk in a range of direct and indirect ways.Community empowerment is a critical enabler for improving key populations’ living conditions, developing strategies for health and rights interventions and redressing violations of the human rights of people from key populations. Community empowerment can take many forms, such as meaningful participation of people from key populations in designing services, peer education, implementation of legal literacy and service programs, and fostering key population-led groups and key population-led programs and service delivery.
