Some of the organisations profiled in this NSWP global report on sex worker-led HIV programming have made significant headway in making local health care and social service providers, along with law enforcement officers, aware of the sometimes complex issues affecting sex workers, resulting in more effective and welcoming services. Despite these successes, the organisations themselves often operate on a shoestring budget and in an unfavourable political climate which sees widespread stigma and hostility towards sex workers and other marginalised groups.
The role of this report is to highlight the contribution of four sex worker-led organisations in developing and advancing such an evidence-based and comprehensive response to HIV: Tais Plus from Kyrgyzstan, STARSTAR from Macedonia, Rose Alliance from Sweden, and Silver Rose from the Russian Federation.
