HIV Prevention Among Female Sex Workers

On February 4 E.V.A. held a webinar on “HIV Prevention Strategies for Female Sex Workers” for our participants and partners.

Host Irina Maslova, Executive Director of the Astarta Foundation, discussed the main directions of prevention work, listed the services in demand, and pointed out the subtle difficulties of interacting with this target group. Twelve specialists (volunteers, peer counselors, researchers, project managers) from various cities (Irkutsk, Krasnoyarsk, Samara, Saint Petersburg) with different work experience in prevention programs took part in the webinar. Participants not only asked questions but also actively shared their work experiences and successful practices in the area of HIV prevention among female sex workers. We thank the host and participants for their immersive collaboration.
