The case studies in this report offer a look at real-life sex workerled programming that has reduced police abuse, health risks, and other adverse impacts of bad laws and law enforcement on sex workers.
The six case studies presented in this publication—in Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Ukraine, South Africa, and Zimbabwe—capture a variety of approaches supported by the Open Society Foundations for nearly ten years that have achieved positive changes. Though they are not exhaustive, these studies highlight accomplishments and ongoing challenges. The full impact may be difficult to measure, but sex workers in each context describe changes that make their lives better.
