Sex Workers Talk About HIV - Commemorating World AIDS Day 2006

In the 80’s, sex workers’ response to HIV in Australia was immediate and tangible. Sex workers organised together to do voluntary peer education work, including the distribution of condoms in street based sex working areas. Brothel sex workers demanded the right to use condoms, educating their clients and the brothel owners in the process. By the late 1980’s, condom use was up to 90%, setting an environment for an unprecedented positive public health story. To date, there has been no recorded transmission of HIV through sex work in Australia.
