Sex workers assess implementation of SWIT

Asia Pacific Network of Sex Workers (APNSW) held a five-day “SWIT” regional training from 24-28th April 2017 in Bangkok, Thailand. Participants came from Papua New Guinea, Pakistan, Myanmar and China. During the regional training participants shared their experiences of how many SWIT-related activities are currently happening in their countries. ... Despite the SWIT being published in 2013, and being a WHO reference document for public health policy, it is clear many states in Asia and the Pacific have not yet engaged with these guidelines.
