Sex Workers Who Use Drugs. International Network of People Who Use Drugs (INPUD) and Global Network of Sex Work Projects (NSWP). (2020)

immage

Sex workers and people who use drugs are subject to widespread violations of their human rights, which, for the most part, go unchallenged. Globally, these groups are subjected to repressive and discriminatory laws, policies and practices. These policies and practices fuel stigma, discrimination, widespread violence, and significantly increase the risks and vulnerabilities of both populations to sexually transmitted infections and blood borne viruses, notably HIV and hepatitis B and C. In settings that have detrimental and punitive drug and sex work laws and policies, sex workers who use drugs experience interconnected layers of risk and vulnerability, caused by the compounded effects of criminalisation, stigma, and discrimination.

Gender and COVID-19: Advocacy Brief, 14 May 2020. WHO. (2020)

immage

Pandemics and outbreaks have differential impacts on women and men. From risk of exposure and biological susceptibility to infection to the social and economic implications, individuals’ experiences are likely to vary according to their biological and gender characteristics and their interaction with other social determinants. Because of this, global and national strategic plans for COVID-19 preparedness and response must be grounded in strong gender analysis and must ensure meaningful participation of affected groups, including women and girls, in decision-making and implementation.
