Although I am a female sex worker, I am supporting my family financially. I am not spreading HIV, I am not a carrier. Although I am a sex worker, I am not a pleasure-seeker. I am helping my peers in order to be protected by laws and gain access to health care services. I want to be a good mother, housewife and leader of preventive measures *** Local Caption *** ကၽြန္မသည္ F.S.W ျဖစ္ေသာ္လည္း မိသားစုကို ရွာေဖြေကၽြးေမြးေနသူျဖစ္ေသာေၾကာင့္ ကၽြန္မသည္ HIV ပိုးျဖန္႔ေ၀သူ၊ သယ္ေဆာင္သူမဟုတ္ပါ။ ကၽြန္မသည္ FSW ျဖစ္ေသာ္လည္း အေပ်ာ္အပါး လိုက္စားသူမဟုတ္ပါ။ ကၽြန္မသည္ ဘ၀တူမ်ားကို က်န္းမာေရးေစာင့္ေရွာက္မွဳ ႏွင့္ ဥပေဒ အကူအညီ ရရွိရန္ လုပ္ေဆာင္ေနသူျဖစ္ပါတယ္။ အိ္မ္ရွင္မ၊ မိခင္ေကာင္း၊ ကာကြယ္ေရးလုပ္ငန္းမ်ားကို ဦးေဆာင္ႏိုင္သူ ျဖစ္ခ်င္ပါတယ္။

Frontline AIDS has partnered with PhotoVoice to deliver a series of participatory photography projects in Myanmar, Nigeria and Uganda to support marginalised communities to advocate for improved HIV prevention, treatment and care, and sexual and reproductive health services and rights. Advocates and young emerging champions from the Partnership to Inspire, Transform and Connect the HIV response (PITCH) programme were supported to explore the use of photography and storytelling in their work, and to use the resulting messages as tools for advocacy.
