NSWP is seeking to appoint a Global Consultant to develop a Policy Brief with accompanying Community Guide on the impact of criminalisation on sex workers’ vulnerability to HIV and violence.

The criminalisation of sex work leads to sex workers being disproportionately impacted by HIV and other STIs, as they face substantial barriers in accessing prevention, treatment, and care services. Research also clearly shows that criminalisation and law enforcement practices often grants impunity to perpetrators of violence, pushing sex work underground, reducing sex workers’ ability to negotiate safe work practices and increasing stigma and discrimination.

Please see the full Terms of Reference below for the position.
