This advocacy toolkit serves to highlight the harms associated with this approach of criminalisation, both in relation to the simplistic and crude understandings of sex work and of sex workers that are used to justify the law, and in relation to the direct outcomes of the resulting legal framework of criminalising the purchase of sex. In contrast to claims that the Swedish model is a necessary and effective approach in protecting women from violence and exploitation, sex workers in Sweden note worrying consequences of the law in terms of their safety and wellbeing.

Communities Delegation of the Global Fund: Global Report on the Engagement of Key Populations in the Global Fund's new Funding Model.

The report identifies six areas of concern reported by key population communities related to their engagement in the Funding Model.

These areas of concern will need to be addressed if the engagement of key population communities is going to be meaningful and lead to improved outcomes for these communities.
