NSWP members engage in a diverse range of conferences, with the goal of amplifying the voices of sex worker-led organisations around the world.
International AIDS Conferences
NSWP was launched as an informal alliance of sex workers’ rights activists at the International AIDS Conference (IAC) in Amsterdam in 1992. The IAC is held every two years and brings together those working in the field of HIV, including academics, implementers, policy makers, people living with HIV and those most affected by HIV. It includes a Global Village where NSWP in partnership with the local members and regional networks organise the Sex Worker Networking Zone and coordinate and support sex worker participation in the conference.
