NGO: Empower Sex Workers to Demand Safe Sex

The Badilika Foundation, a faith-based organisation working to transform lives of sex workers, states that Malawi will not win the fight against HIV and AIDS unless sex workers are empowered to demand safe sex as one way of HIV reducing transmission.

The foundation’s executive director, Forbes Msiska, argues that, "Clients of these sex workers are mostly married men who have stable families and failure to empower them to demand condom usage is likely to lead to many innocent partners at home getting infected as the client will get infected and later infect their partners."

Ramaphosa: Sex Workers to Access ARVs

Sex workers, long ignored by the government and harassed by police, will finally get access to HIV treatment and prevention - but decriminalisation has not been dealt with by government and this could hobble the initiative.
 
Deputy President, Cyril Ramaphosa, released a detailed plan on Friday to ensure sex workers achieve better healthcare.
 
With about 70 percent of sex workers in Johannesburg are HIV-positive, Ramaphosa said sex workers will now receive antiretrovirals as soon as they test positive.
