Sex Work and HIV: The Effects of Criminalization
Sex workers have long faced the stigma of being seen, and treated, as vectors of disease, with horrendous repercussions on the health and safety of the community. Approaches to sex work, and to HIV, have more often than not put people who trade sex at higher risk of HIV transmission, and created barriers to care. In this webinar, participants will better understand the barriers and challenges faced by people who trade sex, including the impact of overlapping areas of criminalization, and begin to explore how de-stigmatization and de-criminalization of both sex work and HIV can have long-lasting and significant improvements on health and wellness for marginalized communities.
