As a stigmatised and often criminalised group, sex workers are frequently the victims of human rights abuses, including sexual violence. Historically, the majority of sex workers have lacked adequate access to information about their rights, safe sex, health services, and equality before the law. In turn, this has significant implications for basic safety, the spread of HIV/AIDs, and unwanted pregnancies.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><a

help to promote community resilience and reduce vulnerability to a wide range of disasters and emergency situations."</em></p> <p> From the University of Adelaide, Applied Communication Collaborative Research Unit (ACCRU), the Communication for Humanitarian Action Toolkit (CHAT) provides guidance to humanitarian and development organisations in the area of emergency communication strategy design, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation. It focuses on providing essential emergency warnings, as well as communication that promotes behaviour change, community mobilisation, and action. CHAT is practice focused and designed to help users to quickly develop a communication for humanitarian action strategy using a range of step-by-step templates and short workshop facilitation guides.
