Continued peer education for sex workers is a priority for maintaining a safe sex culture and protecting the health of sex workers and their clients. Sex worker organisations have been fundamental to raising awareness of STIs and BBVs and supporting sex workers to develop and refine skills in STI and BBV prevention.

An understanding of workplace safety and sex worker marginalisation and vulnerability is fundamental to the development of targeted and funded health promotion initiatives. Ensuring sex workers are equipped to maintain safe sex practices, while adapting to a changing industry, requires complex, flexible, education and community development approaches by sex worker organisations.

The continued consultation, development and implementation of prevention and health promotion programs for sex workers, in a variety of changing environments, is an integral part of any STI strategy. Different legal environments can facilitate or hinder health promotion and education initiatives. This strategy supports actively exploring these. Access to appropriate, private and non-discriminatory health services is vital. Support for safe work practices and cultural change to reduce stigma and discrimination towards sex workers are other important features of health promotion interventions.
