Released on International Human Rights Day, a disturbing and sobering report from MSMGF examines levels of violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people around the world, revealing a high frequency of brutal attacks across all regions. The report indicates that activists and HIV service providers are especially vulnerable, with attacks against community leaders resulting in interruptions to life-saving HIV services. The report underscores the urgent need for real, institutionalized protections for marginalized communities.
This toolkit specifically aims to address the capacity gaps identified at the ARASA knowledge-sharing and networking consultations. It provides user-friendly guidance, case studies, and tools specifically directed at strengthening and promoting advocacy towards the rights of LGBTI individuals in Southern and East Africa. The toolkit adopts a rights-based approach to SOGI rights advocacy, consistent with ARASA’s approach to all its work, and focuses on promoting universal access to SRHR services including HIV prevention, treatment, care and support for LGBTI persons.
The Blueprint is a document with far-reaching potential and applications in trans health and human rights in the region. The purpose of the Blueprint is to strengthen and enhance the policy-related, clinical, and public health responses for trans people in Asia and the Pacific.
NSWP hopes that this advocacy toolkit will highlight the harms associated with this approach of criminalisation, both in relation to the simplistic and crude understandings of sex work and of sex workers that are used to justify the law, and in relation to the direct outcomes of the resulting legal framework of criminalising the purchase of sex. In contrast to claims that the Swedish model is a necessary and effective approach in protecting women from violence and exploitation, sex workers in Sweden note worrying consequences of the law in terms of their safety and wellbeing.
123 peer-to-peer in-depth qualitative interviews with female, male and transgender sex workers and key informants was carried out in Indonesia (Jakarta), Myanmar (Yangon), Nepal (Kathmandu) and Sri Lanka (Colombo). “The research provides sound evidence that the violence that sex workers experience denies them their fundamental human rights and contributes to the spread of HIV,” said Meena Saraswathi Seshu, from Centre for Advocacy on Stigma and Marginalisation, one of the co-authors of the report.
The Trans Sex Work briefing paper focuses on the issues and needs identified by trans sex workers (TSW) as disclosed in NSWP forums including an online questionnaire and face-to-face focus groups.
