Description: Stop AIDS developed a report looking at key populations in the context of international health and inequalities, which noted the significantly higher burden of HIV faced by sex workers globally. The renewed call to establish organisational positions on sex work in light of this evidence has prompted widespread discussion within and amongst those working on health and other international development issues. In an attempt to facilitate this discussion amongst Stop AIDS members, a workshop was held in March 2015 that focused on sex work in relation to health and the global HIV response. This factsheet has been prepared following the workshop and a shared desire to see an official Stop AIDS position on sex work in the context of health and HIV.
