TLH at the 19th AIDS Conference in Washington DC PDF Print E-mail

A study developed by TLH Ethiopia and its International and Local partners has been chosen to be presented on the 19th AIDS Conference in Washington DC that takes place from the 22-28July,2012.

The study developed jointly by TLH Ethiopia’s Wise Up Program, UNDP, Michael Kirby Centre for Public Health and Human Rights, sampled three Wise Up operational sites. It shows that since we started our unique intervention program on police officers, venue owners and other gatekeepers the violence on sex workers has reduced significantly and legal services have been availed through referral linkages with Woman Affairs Bureau at all levels nationwide.

Taking this opportunity we would like to extend our gratitude for our good friend and mentor Cheryl Overs who lead the study for the whole three years, Rotaractor Beza Alemayehu (Henock’s sister) who assisted the ground work, TLH Ethiopia and Wise Up Program staff and above all the sex workers who participated in the study.

And finally, warm gratitude to our prime donor of Wise Up Program, DKT Ethiopia that partially covered TLH’s expense of the Conference and helped us to share our best practices to the World!
