Infographic: Sex Worker Community-led Responses to COVID-19


This infographic summarises the Smart Sex Worker’s Guide to Community-led Responses to COVID-19.

Sex workers were among the hardest hit at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and continue to be impacted by this global public health crisis. The challenges that sex workers faced before COVID-19, as a result of criminalisation, stigma and discrimination, were all exacerbated by the pandemic. As governments failed to provide adequate assistance in their emergency responses and social protection mechanisms, sex worker-led organisations around the world stepped up to support their communities. 

NSWP infographics are tools for sex workers' advocacy worldwide. They contain images created by Molly Hankinson.

You can download this infographic above in English, and it is also available in French, Russian, Spanish, Chinese and Arabic. A print-friendly version is also available above if you would like to print the infographics as a short A5 booklet on A4 paper.
