从全球范围来看,性工作者受到艾滋病的严重影响。据估计,性工作者的感染率是一般人群的34倍。对于全球性工作者的健康和福祉来说,获得艾滋病预防的有关物品、检测和治疗是非常重要的。世界卫生组织的指南提供了面向包括性工作者在内重点人群干预措施的建议。这些干预措施包括全面的安全套和润滑剂项目、艾滋病检测和咨询、艾滋病治疗和关怀、性和生殖健康服务。SWIT进一步包含了针对艾滋病预防和关怀的建议。但是,联合国艾滋病规划署2018年的全球艾滋病进展报告指出,在重点人群对艾滋病预防物品和治疗的需求与实际供应之间存在着巨大的差距,全球重点人群的新发感染达到了47%。

这份简报探索了20个国家中性工作者关于基本药物的断供、抗病毒药物、安全套和润滑剂、性病和艾滋病的诊断,以及艾滋病病毒载量检测的经验。简报提供了来自性工作者的直接证据;彰显了这些药品断供如何导致了感染的脆弱性、治疗的中断、艾滋病性病的耐药,滞后诊断、治疗失败,以及死亡。简报还提供了解决这些问题的建议。

这份简报由国际艾滋病治疗联盟(ITPC)和全球性工作项目网络(NSWP)之间的合作。
