Colectivo Seres A.C., Mexico
Colectivo Seres A.C., based in Mexico, produced this video to reflect on their programme 'Ni más, ni menos - My health has no price'. This programme was created to ensure that sex workers in the state of Guanajuato, Mexico, have their Right to Health and wellbeing guaranteed, with the support of ViiVHealtcare. 759 people were guaranteed services in prevention, care, diagnosis and treatment for HIV and STI prevention, care, diagnosis and treatment services. This has ensured that sex work today guarantees health and wellbeing for sex workers and wellbeing for sex workers and their clients, as well as better conditions for their for sex work, making it possible to develop in a context of human rights.
TAMPEP (The European Network for the Promotion of Rights and Health among Migrant Sex Workers) is a migrant sex worker-led network, which sex worker-led groups and organisations can join. To mark the International Day to End Violence against Sex Workers on December 17th, TAMPEP created this video on the impact of the COVID pandemic on migrant women workers. It is also in the framework of their campaign that always continues with the same slogan: Migrant Sex Workers Call for Rights.
