The coalition works with male, female and transgender sex workers where our main focus is on human and workers rights, education and advocacy at all levels of the Jamaican society.
The Jamaica SW Coalition is a sex worker led organisation with more than 80% of the executive being sex workers.
There are many challenges that sex workers in Jamaica face on a daily basis. Two of such are discrimination from govenment run health care facilities and also from the police.
Other areas of the work that the association has been involved in is working with sex workers to enhance the image of the product that they have to offer and from that a product enhancement manual has been developed. We also do referrals to safe and confidential sites where sex workers can have medical examinations done.
