Article in BMC Public Health 2011, 11:700. Background Concerns have been raised that marginalised populations may not achieve adequate compliance to antiretroviral therapy.

Abstract from the Int Conf AIDS. 2004 Jul 11-16; 15: abstract no. WePeC6224. Issues: Female sex workers (FSWs) are considered to be one of the high-risk groups driving the epidemic of HIV/AIDS because of exposure to multiple partners and inconsistent use of condoms. Poverty has also been fingered as a twin problem militating against the effective prevention and impact mitigation of HIV/AIDS in Nigeria among this group. This study aimed at assessing the knowledge, attitude and practice of sex workers in relation to HIV/AIDS and poverty. Unlike the situation a few decades ago, commercial sex in Addis Ababa has increasingly

NSWP

The Advisory Group offers a greater understanding of the situation of sex workers – an understanding that is necessary to address the abuses they face and to ensure they have universal access to HIV services. Every effort has been made to highlight good practices that enhance human rights protections for sex workers, as well as practices that create barriers to universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support. Young people of all ages have seen increased attention in HIV and AIDS discussions, yet there exists little to no policy guidance on providing rights-based universal access to HIV prevention, care,

policy

An ID21 Insights edited by Susie Jolly. What do sexuality and policy have to do with each other? Is not sexuality personal, private, and more to do with your body than your politics? Of course on one level it is. However, if we consider our sexual relations in a little more depth, we discover that the terms for them are set by policies and politics, including social norms and gender dynamics, national policies and international relations. Making Sex Work Safe was developed by sex workers from the early International Network of Sex Work Projects (NSWP). It was written by Paulo

This monograph is published by Sampada Gramin Mahila Sanstha (SANGRAM) and written by Sandhya Rao and Cath Sluggett. It draws its title, and all the chapter headings, from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. The authors argue that the farcical fantasy of Alice’s adventures in the mythical Wonderland seems an apt reference to the unfamiliarity of the terrain that they have had to navigate when attempting to assess the ways in which the human rights framework has succeeded and where it has failed for sex workers in India. This news story, by Noy Thrupkaew in The Nation, explores approaches to
