Gaining power: how sex workers in Mozambique made their voices heard
Sex workers in Mozambique are demanding their rights and achieving results.
For years, sex workers in Mozambique have struggled to access decision-making spaces, and often turned to civil society organisations working on issues such as HIV and sexual and reproductive health and rights to speak on their behalf. But in the last few years, with support from the Partnership to Inspire, Transform and Connect the HIV resonse (PITCH), an important shift has happened: sex workers are now directly advocating for their own needs, and change is happening as a result.
