We advocate for the idea of sex workers forming an alliance. It is a fact that sex workers in the country are abused.
Their job environment has a lot of hazards ranging from health concerns to physical safety.
Recently there have been abounding reports of sex workers being abused by the Police.
Unfortunately because prostitution is regarded an illegal business in Malawi, the rights of sex workers have suffered neglect and the police take
advantage of this situation to abuse them.
But sex workers are also human beings and they are into this business to earn a living. It is therefore important that their rights should be respected.
The sex workers are particularly at great risk because of HIV/Aids which is mainly contracted through sex.
We hope this alliance will help to protect the rights of the sex workers from abuse. We hope it will also
help to improve access to information that will protect the sex workers from avoidable infections.
