"Research For Sex Work" Edition 10, Sex Worker Rights! 2008

Realistic efforts to include affected populations including sex workers are critical to combat the spread of HIV. Unfortunately, in some places and agencies, this approach is being abandoned in favor of judgemental and moralistic approaches, the same types of law-and-order efforts to contain HIV that contributed to the growth of the epidemic. Funding streams and funding restrictions continue to promote stigma and discrimination against sex workers. US funding restrictions applied to anti-trafficking and HIVprevention monies have cowed many service providers and implementing agencies. Effective HIV-prevention efforts require genuine participation of marginalised groups, including sex workers of all genders. Sex workers hope that future HIV-prevention funding will not further exclude the most vulnerable populations. Sex workers are part of the solution!
