GWIHR Policy Level Workshop with Stakeholders, Sex Workers Leaders and other Civil Organisations.

GWIHR held a Policy Level Workshop with stakeholders, sex workers’ leaders, and other civil organizations to review laws and policies and improve policies on gender-based violence against sex workers and the implementation of protecting laws, such as the Violence Against People (Prohibition) (VAAP) Act, National Gender Policy and Sexual Offenses Act.
These laws and policies were reviewed by the law markers, CSOs and sex workers leaders and it was agreed that there were sufficient laws to protect female and transgender sex workers and as such, implementation strategies should be strategic for effective result. Translating the VAPP Act into the most localized language in the state was agreed on to enable sex workers in their diversities to understand the law and dwell under its protective shield. The project is funded by UN Women
