What is Their Hate About? Harmful Gender Norms and Violence against Male, Female and Transgender Sex Workers in Asia. Szabo G and Cabassi J. (2016)

immage

Sex workers experience extreme violence – at work, in prison and police stations, in their neighbourhoods and in their homes, from family members, police, clients, intimate partners and strangers. This violence is gender-based. Male, female and transgender sex workers are targeted because they challenge traditional gender norms and are denied fundamental human rights – to equal protection under the law, protection from cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment, and to the highest attainable standard of health. 


Keywords: HIV, SWs, gender, sexual violence, Indonesia, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri Lanka

10 Reasons to Decriminalize Sex Work 2015. Open Society Foundations. (2015)

immage

This document provides ten reasons why decriminalization of sex work is the best policy for promoting the health and human rights of sex workers, their families, and communities. Decriminalization refers to the removal of all criminal and administrative prohibitions and penalties on sex work, including laws targeting clients and brothel owners. It differs from legalization, which is a legislative regime characterized by significant regulations—many of which can limit rights and protections, create mechanisms for abuse by authorities, and have other negative impacts on sex workers.

A Survey of HIV, Syphilis and Risk Behaviours among Males Having Sex with Males, Male sex Workers and Hijra. Md. MR, Md. SA, Khan SI, Rana AM, Gourab G, and Azim T. (2014)

immage

Bangladesh has been providing HIV prevention services for males having sex with males (MSM), male sex worker (MSW) and hijra for more than a decade. In parallel to providing HIV prevention services, Bangladesh has been collecting risk behaviour and HIV prevalence data on these population groups through a national surveillance system which was set up by the Government of Bangladesh in 1998. The surveillance system has been crucial in providing key information that has helped Bangladesh to monitor changes in risk behaviours and infection prevalence over time, the data has been the backbone against which the national HIV strategic plans have been developed and global reports have been prepared. These data also enable measuring the effect of the on-going large scale HIV prevention programs for MSM, MSW and hijra.
