Where our members work

NSWP’s members are local, national and regional sex worker organisations and networks, across five regions: Africa; Asia and the Pacific; Europe (including Eastern Europe and Central Asia); Latin America and North America and the Caribbean. Members in each region elect two representatives to the NSWP Board of Directors.

All member organisations are required to endorse NSWP’s core values and the Consensus Statement on Sex Work, Human Rights, and the Law. Only sex worker-led organisations and networks have voting rights.

NSWP members are from diverse cultures and have different experiences and organisational histories. Most are independent sex worker-led organisations, some are informal groups of sex workers within larger organisations and some are non-governmental organisations who support sex workers rights. Some member organisations provide services, some focus on advocacy, some on mobilising to reduce vulnerability – all work on human rights issues that affect the health and well-being of sex workers.

You can find our members through the regional pages or by clicking on the red umbrellas on the map.

Note: For both safety and security NSWP does not identify which members are sex worker-led on our website, and members can choose not to be listed on the public website.

This resource is a Community Guide to the Policy Brief on the Impact of Stigma and Discrimination on Key Populations and Their Families. It provides an overview of the full Policy Brief, and provides key recommendations for policymakers and other stakeholders. 

27th November 2018 by NSWP | Region: Global

Societal stigma and punitive legal frameworks often severely impede key populations’ rights to raise families free from interference and discrimination. The experiences of key population groups (gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men, people who use drugs, sex workers, and transgender people) are diverse, and are informed by varying levels of criminalisation, stigma and discrimination, and individual factors such as socioeconomic status, gender, race, and health status. This paper explores these challenges, and provides recommendations for policymakers.

This resource is a Community Guide to the Briefing Paper on the Homophobia and Transphobia Experienced by LGBT Sex Workers. It provides an overview of the full Briefing Paper, and provides key recommendations for policymakers and other stakeholders. 

You can download this 6 page resource above. It is available in English, and will be available in Chinese, French, Russian and Spanish soon.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people experience targeted homophobia and transphobia at every level – including legal, political and social. For sex workers who are LGBT, discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity adds to and intensifies the discrimination they experience as sex workers.

NSWP开发了一系列面向性工作者组织的工具,这些工具能够用来监督性工作者执行工具(SWIT)的使用,以及性工作者在其国家的有效参与。我们设计这些工具来知晓差距,提供信息来支持性工作者组织的倡导工作,让他们在各自的国家能够提供以权利为基础的服务。

LINKAGES/UNDP与NSWP联系,希望能够开发一个由社区领导的评估框架,来评估SWIT的使用和性工作者在政策开发和项目方面的有效参与。2017年我们在乌克兰举办了一个全球专家会议,自那以后NSWP及其合作伙伴开发了一系列的工具。

NSWP开发了一系列的工作,你可以下载这些工具的英语、法语、俄语和西班牙语版本:

  • 全球专家会议报告
  • 社区评估框架
  • 全球报告与四个国家的评估结果(印度尼西亚、肯尼亚、苏里南、乌克兰)。

社区评估框架也有中文版本。
