View all resources

For years, sex workers in Mozambique have struggled to access decision-making spaces, and often turned to civil society organisations working on issues such as HIV and sexual and reproductive health and rights to speak on their behalf. But in the last few years an important shift has happened: sex workers are now directly advocating for their own needs, and change is happening as a result.

This change story shows how various sex worker groups led by women, trans people and men who have sex with men came together to create the National Platform of Sex Workers’ Rights, with support from the Partnership to Inspire, Transform and Connect the HIV response (PITCH) and organisations such as Pathfinder International.
