Sex workers are a key risk population for HIV. International recognition of the structural drivers of their risk, including gender-based violence (GBV), is mounting. Join this webinar to:
learn more about the prevalence and health impact of violence among sex workers
understand the unique ways in which violence, its health impact, and access to justice are experienced in this population
discuss ways to incorporate prevention and support within HIV programming – even where sex work is criminalised
Dr Michele Decker is an Associate Professor of Population, Family & Reproductive Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, where she directs the Women’s Health & Rights Program of the Center for Public Health & Human Rights. Her research areas include GBV and other structural determinants of HIV risk, and sexual and reproductive health among adolescent and young adult women. She is currently evaluating a brief, trauma-informed, violence support intervention for street-based sex workers that was developed through a community-based participatory process.
