A story of change: What works in reducing violence against sex workers

Hands Off
Last updated on: 27 February 2024

The Hands Off model comprises three key interventions to reduce violence and HIV as a result of violence amongst sex workers by addressing the structural determinants of violence. An independent study shows that where the model has been implemented, it has worked.


Hands Off! came in as one of our biggest sex worker projects. Before that, we had programmes with sex workers, but they were mostly around mobilising communities and movement building. Hands Off! allowed us to speak to the needs of the communities and respond. It came in as a programme that was responding to the community’s needs.
