تشير ’الحماية الاجتماعية‘ إلى الإجراءات المُصَمَّمَة لأجل منع ومعالجة الحالات التي تؤثر سلبا على سلامة الناس، بالإضافة إلى الإجراءات التي تقلل من الضعف وتُسَهِّل الاستقرار الاجتماعي والاقتصادي. كثيرًا ما يتم النظر إلى العاملين/ات بالجنس على أنهم/ن يحتاجون/ن إلى الحماية بسبب الاعتقاد الخاطئ السائد بأن العاملين/ات بالجنس ’ضحايا‘ الاتجار والاستغلال.

لقد كان العاملون/ات بالجنس التجاري من ضمن أولئك الذين تأثروا/ن بشدة في بداية وباء كوڤيد-١٩ ولا يزالون متأثرين/ات بهذه الأزمة العالمية للصحة العامة. إن التحديات التي واجهها العاملون/ات بالجنس التجاري قبل وقوع كوڤيد-١٩، كنتيجة للتجريم، الوصم والتمييز، قد تفاقمت بينما تعرض العاملون/ات بالجنس إلى الصعوبات، الخسارة الكاملة للدخل، الزيادة في المضايقات، انتهاكات الحقوق الإنسانية، واللامساواة الصحية.

NSWP welcomes reports that the online platform OnlyFans has reversed its decision to ban content containing “sexually-explicit conduct” on its website from October 2021, after the backlash the announcement received from its users. The plan would have resulted in a severe loss of income for many sex workers, including those who have moved online to work during the COVID-19 pandemic, and for whom OnlyFans has become a main source of income as the pandemic continues.

The Global Network of Sex Work Projects (NSWP) would like to take this opportunity to express its support for Dr. Tlaleng Mofokeng, who in July 2020 was appointed as the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health.

PION, Norway, with support from NSWP, submitted this shadow report to the 68th CEDAW Session, which took place October-November 2017. The report is based on in-depth interviews, conducted over a two-month period, with sex workers and social service providers. It documents how local administrative laws and the criminalisation of clients and third parties increase stigma and discrimination, impede access to justice and health services, and result in arbitrary deportations and evictions.
