The Day is central to and an important celebration of creating a world where sexual health is optimised for all.
The Global Network of Sex Work Projects (NSWP) Policy Brief: Recommendation for improving sex workers’ access to comprehensive Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) services: ‘Decriminalise sex work, HIV transmission, and same-sex sexual activity, and de-pathologise transgender identities. Criminalisation and pathologisation not only deter sex workers from seeking vital SRH services due to potential legal repercussions, but also reinforce stigma and discrimination in health care settings.’
