Why Sex Workers Must Be part of the HIV conversation

International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers is observed annually on 17 December by Sex workers, their advocates, friends, families and allies. We therefore dedicate this week to discuss sex work in relation to HIV. Dorothy Ogutu, the Africa Regional Coordinator for the African Sex Worker Alliance, at the recent International Conference on STIs and AIDS in Africa, shares the importance of including sex workers in HIV prevention program design and implementation.
