We have visited several of brothel houses, where we provided HIV/AIDS awareness. We have been training them for safe sex and substance harms. We provided them with condoms along with water based-lubricants. We also completed a pilot study and analysis of HIV and sexual risk behaviour and drug use.
Sex workers visits us and share with us their problem, they are wanting to come in front of the world openly, due to unfriendly atmosphere for them in Pakistan they are living in behind bars. FSWs comes with new art artists to train them about HIV/AIDS, safe sex and substance harms.
Winning the trust of sex workers is very difficult in Pakistan, in the past some organisation analysed their HIV and Sexual risk behaviour and used the information to blackmail them.
Another challenge is the hostile environment sex workers face due to the legislation of Pakistan, Police and other security agencies often harass and vicitimise sex workers.
