Job opening: Communication Expert for Hands Off II programme

Aidsfonds is looking for a communication expert (4 hours a week, freelance is possible) until the end of this year for its Hands Off programme, focusing on reducing violence against sex workers in Southern Africa. We encourage candidates from Southern Africa to apply! 

About Hands Off II

The Hands Off programme launched in 2014 with the main goal to reduce violence against sex workers at community, national and regional level. Violence is increasingly being recognised as an important risk factor contributing to the spread of HIV and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) worldwide. High rates of violence perpetrated against (female) sex workers have been consistently documented in developing countries. Sex workers exposed to violence were more likely to be infected with HIV and other STIs than those who did not report such experiences.

The first phase 1 of the Hands Off programme (2014 - 2019) has proven that the Hands Off model, a combination of engagement with police in the HIV response, litigation and movement building results in reduced violence against sex workers. The second phase (2019 – 2024) will further build on the Hands Off model and intensify interventions that are proven to lead towards a reduction of violence as well as pilot new and innovative strategies.
