Addressing Poverty, Unemployment and Gender Inequality in Southern Africa: An Alternative Strategy for HIV/AIDS Prevention with Sex Workers in Botswana
Ntseane, Peggy Gabo
Convergence, v37 n4 p9-22 2004
This article presents the results of a study that was conducted as an effort to identify the needs of sex workers as potential beneficiaries of future HIV prevention and empowerment activities. The purpose of this study was to assess the situation and needs of sex workers in the context of HIV/AIDS. Data were collected from one of the small villages that are also used as an international truck stop-over for truck drivers from the Southern African region. There were three main research areas that focused this needs assessment study, namely: (1) to describe the situation and extent of sex work in the community/village; (2) to identify the problems and needs of the sex workers operating from that locality; and (3) to identify the perceived strategic response to the situation of commercial sex work.
