Sex workers in Ireland face many challenges in accessing the sexual health services they need. Societal stigma, isolated workplaces, criminal laws and the precarity of their work all impact how sex workers see and access services and support.

SWAI will present its research with sex workers about their experience of sexual health services and how they want their needs met as service users.
 
The event will also include a presentation and launch of GOSHH's case study on designing and delivering sexual health services with and for sex workers.
 
Sex Workers in Ireland are service users in all targeted and mainstream HSE, NGO delivered and private sexual health services. This seminar is relevant to anyone working in sexual health, health promotion, community development, education, family or support services from any sector.
 
This seminar is part of a partnership project Sex Workers, HIV and Sexual Health: Good Practice in Service Provision between HIV Ireland and Sex Workers Alliance Ireland funded by Gilead.
