"The HIV and Sex Work Collection: Innovative Responses in Asia and the Pacific" is a collection of case studies highlighting the work undertaken by sex worker-led community based organisations and networks in undertaking HIV related advocacy efforts. It was launched in 2012 as the result of a collaboration between UNFPA, UNAIDS and APNSW.
In 2009, Ashodaya Samithi formally launched the Ashodaya Academy, a teaching and learning program for sharing experiences of sex worker-led approaches to effective HIV prevention, in Karnataka state, India. Sex workers, NGOs, and government officials from over 15 countries have been trained.
Female, male and transgender sex workers in Mysore, India, formally registered Ashodaya Samithi as a sex worker-led community-based organisation in 2005.
