Abstract:

This strategic document provides a framework to all service providers to create an environment that will enable and empower sex workers to reduce their own risk of HIV/STIs acquisition and/or transmission, to seek and get appropriate early diagnosis and treatment of HIV/STIs and to address structural issues related to HIV and sex work. Further, this strategy will create a benchmark against which the services provided to sex workers will be monitored and evaluated to inform continuous improvement in our quest to improve access, uptake and effective utilisation of HIV prevention activities.
