Published by Desert Soul Health and Development Communication in Namibia, this leaflet seeks to inform sex workers about their rights and how to stay healthy. It is presented from the perspective of a sex worker who tells the reader how and why she became a sex worker, and explains some of the risks and dangers of being a sexworker. At the same time, it gives advice on how to keep safe and ensure that sex worker rights are protected. It also offers a list of places to go for help.
The leaflet forms part of the Soul City Regional Programme on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights which is working to intensify cross border social and behaviour change communication (SBCC) interventions with a particular focus on high risk groups such as sexworkers, truckers, and migrant populations. The cross border work of the programme is taking place in Namibia, Malawi, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. The programme is an initiative of the Soul City Institute for Health and Development Communication and 7 regional partners and is funded by the Sweden and Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad).
