Source (institute/publication): 
This report documents good practices for sex worker-led organisations in four African countries including Kenya, Uganda, Cameroon, and South Africa. The organisations documented are:
  1. Bar Hostess Empowerment and Support Programme (BHESP) in Kenya,
  2. Aids ACODEV Cameroon in Cameroon,
  3. SISONKE in South Africa, and
  4. Women’s Organisation Network for Human Rights Advocacy (WONETHA) in Uganda.

The report suggests that direct involvement and participation of sex workers themselves in the design, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of the intervention programmes, as well as provision of leadership by sex workers, remains the greatest approach the organisations have recorded in their successes. Issues highlighted in the report include an understanding of the legal position of sex work, HIV programming access by sex workers, human rights violations of sex workers, the interventions by the organisations, the challenges faced by the organisations, and recommendations.
