From October 15 to 17 of this year, the representatives of the Right Side Human Rights Defender NGO participated in the Red Umbrella Academy in Warsaw, which was organized by the European Sex Workers’ Rights Alliance (ESWA). The academy aimed to improve sex workers’ access to HIV prevention and treatment services. The program was divided into three workstreams:
During the academy, training sessions took place on access to combination HIV prevention tools, including PrEP. Challenges faced by the sex worker community, as well as their needs and barriers to accessing services, were addressed. Participants exchanged experiences and discussed the vulnerability of sex workers, Trans LGBIQ people, as well as migrants due to stigma and discrimination in society and other challenges.
Representatives of the Right Side Human Rights Defender NGO spoke about the new project launched by the organization, which is funded by the European Alliance for Sex Workers’ Rights and aims to increase access to PrEP for representatives of the sex worker community in the Republic of Armenia through advocacy.
As the first Trans and sex worker community-based organization, Right Side Human Rights Defender NGO prioritizes ensuring access to HIV prevention tools for the Trans LGBIQ, sex worker communities and will continue to expand its work to achieve positive change in that direction.
