NGO: Empower Sex Workers to Demand Safe Sex

The Badilika Foundation calls on Malawi to empower sex workers to demand safe sex as a possible way to win the fight against HIV/AIDS in Malawi

The Badilika Foundation, a faith-based organisation working to transform lives of sex workers, states that Malawi will not win the fight against HIV and AIDS unless sex workers are empowered to demand safe sex as one way of HIV reducing transmission.

The foundation’s executive director, Forbes Msiska, argues that, "Clients of these sex workers are mostly married men who have stable families and failure to empower them to demand condom usage is likely to lead to many innocent partners at home getting infected as the client will get infected and later infect their partners."

Msiska further adds that the organisation is working through six community discussion forums in Blantyre City where counselling sessions, condom negotiation training, and condom distribution to help sex workers practise safe sex are held.
