This 5-day largely interactive and participatory subject uses case studies from around the world to highlight the myriad of factors that contribute to HIV vulnerability of sex workers and examines the overlapping vulnerabilities of sex work and injecting drug use (IDU) and men who have sex with men (MSM). It explores the themes of stigma and discrimination, gender inequities, violence, trafficking, funding policies and legal frameworks, and their impact on HIV vulnerability and mitigation. The training is co-coordinated by Brigitte Tenni and will be conducted in conjunction with sex worker representatives from Vixen, and includes a guided field visit by RhED to a working brothel to see firsthand the settings in which the Victorian sex industry operates.
