Elena REYNAGA (Argentina)

Sex Work Elena Eva Reynaga is a Female Sex Worker (FSW) born in San Pedro de Jujuy, Argentina. She started working as a social activist in 1994, together with other FSWs, to denounce the violation of their human rights by the police and government. She became a point of reference both nationally and internationally with regard to sex work related issues, including HIV/AIDS, violence, gender, human rights and labor rights. Ms. Reynaga is the Founder and Executive Secretary of AMMAR, the Argentine Association of Female Sex Workers. Its major achievements have been the elimination of police edicts (minor laws) which criminalized sex work, and the establishment of a syndicate, which gives FSWs the status of workers. About 1,700 FSWs living in 11 provinces of Argentina are affiliated with AMMAR. Her work is considered good practice throughout the Latin America and Caribbean region and in some European and North American countries. Ms. Reynaga is a member of the National Board of the Argentine Workers’ Centre, Executive Secretary of the Latin American and Caribbean Network of Female Sex Workers, and a member of the Latin American HIV/AIDS Networks Initiative. In 2006 Ms. Reynaga was a speaker at the United Nations High Level Meeting and at the Women Deliver Conference in London.

BeitragVerfasst: 2008-09-16, 14:03  Beitrag #22/138     Titel:  Auswirkungen der US-Prostitutionsfeindlichkeit:  Nach untenNach oben

Über die kontraproduktiven Auswirkung der Anti-Prostitutions-Zusage,
die die U.S. Regierung fordert, bevor sie Hilfsorganisationen unterstützt.

Perpetuating the Prostitution Pledge: Allegiance to Failure

Mary Beth Hastings on September 15, 2008 - 8:00am

In yet another example of the Bush Administration's assault on public health and human rights using the unwieldy club of "morality," it appears that the prostitution pledge will remain embedded in the forehead of U.S. global AIDS policy for several years, unless advocates can muster enough support to pluck it out.

Common sense, respect for human rights, and the urgency of HIV prevention all cry out for an end to the pledge, which requires organizations receiving U.S. global AIDS funds to have a policy explicitly opposing the practice of prostitution. This policy must apply to all the organization's activities - even those funded by other donors.

The Center for Health and Gender Equity (CHANGE) just released our policy brief that highlights the many legal, ethical, and practical alarm bells raised by the pledge. Based largely on interviews with people on the frontlines of HIV prevention among sex workers, the brief looks at the pledge's impact on life-saving programs on the ground.

What it reveals is a dismal picture: effective programs suddenly cut off from funding, groups self-censoring messages on sex worker rights, and sex workers with nowhere to go for support or condom supplies.

The good news is that for many U.S.-based organizations, the pledge no longer applies. It occurred to some people, including judges in two district courts, that compelling U.S. organizations to spout the government line with money they raise from other sources runs into a little problem called the First Amendment. The Administration is still trying to do an end run around the rulings, but advocates hope that the pledge will soon be history for the large collection of U.S. plaintiffs. (For more on court rulings against the pledge, visit this page.)

But that won't help international organizations overseas.

People who work in these organizations say (and evidence confirms) the most effective HIV prevention programs for sex workers develop trust, affirm dignity and create unity. You can't reach sex workers if they think you might report them to the police, or if they think you're judging them. You can't convince sex workers that they should use condoms if they believe their lives aren't worth saving. No sex worker will enforce condom use with her clients if she thinks everyone else will get more business by not enforcing condom use.

But our report found that the best programs at creating trust, dignity and unity are exactly those most at risk under the pledge.

In Bangladesh, for example, a sex worker outreach program lost money when the international organization that funded them signed the prostitution pledge. Their drop-in centers - safe spaces for sex workers to gather and access health services - were cut from twenty centers to just four, despite international recognition for their success. For sex workers there, most of whom are homeless, the loss of drop-in centers meant losing the place where they slept, bathed, educated themselves, and - perhaps most importantly - received condoms.

A big part of the problem is that the policy seems deliberately vague. The Administration refuses to define what "promoting the practice of prostitution" means in terms of specific activities, although it retains the right to investigate all the activities of funding recipients to make sure they oppose prostitution enough.

As the report finds, the resulting confusion in the field has created a climate of fear and silence, paralyzing organizations that sign the pledge. We found groups clearing their websites of any mention of sex worker rights, groups avoiding media coverage for fear of drawing attention to their work, and groups no longer engaging sex workers in their HIV prevention efforts because it's simply not worth the heightened scrutiny.

These organizations always have to second guess themselves: If they empower sex workers to become peer educators on negotiating condom use with clients, is that promoting prostitution? Is teaching them English so they can better communicate with clients promoting prostitution? If a group organizes sex workers to collectively enforce condom use with clients, and the sex workers start talking about their right to be sex workers, does that group have to give back its money?

So rather than unity, trust and dignity, the pledge has promoted confusion, isolation and shame. By causing organizations to eliminate, water down, or censor their prevention efforts with sex workers, the pledge has undermined evidence-based best practices in public health.

And the really sad part is this: there is no upside. The pledge has had absolutely no measurable impact on decreasing prostitution. Incredibly, that's what the Bush Administration says is the purpose of this policy - to reduce HIV transmission by ending the practice of prostitution.

Does anyone out there think forcing nongovernmental groups to have a policy against prostitution has any bearing at all on how many human beings around the world have sex for money? Really?

So that's what U.S. taxpayers get for their millions in HIV prevention money: a policy that has no discernible impact on its stated goal, yet causes the best programs to either contort or silence themselves to fit a particular conservative worldview, or risk closure by shunning U.S. money.

Let's hope - no, let's make sure - the next Congress and Administration do better.

Tell Obama's Transition Team to Prioritize Ending AIDS as they
determine Obama's Top Policies.


Phone number: +202.540.3000

Here's a script:

    "Hi, my name is _________. I am calling to thank President-elect Obama for his
    historic commitments to fight the AIDS epidemic at home and abroad. I would
    like to let President-Elect Obama and his transition team know that we fully
    support the visionary commitments that he laid out during his campaign,
    including guaranteeing access to HIV treatment in the US and reforming the US
    global AIDS plan to eliminate the anti-prostitution pledge. I'm especially
    supportive of him announcing his plan to fulfil these important commitments
    during his first 100 days in office."

    Thank you!

Activists Celebrate Obama¹s Bold National and Global AIDS Platform, Urge
Implementation in First 100 Days

(Washington, DC) For the first time in recent memory, AIDS activists are
marking World AIDS Day not by risking arrest in protests at the White House,
but by lauding the next president for the hope he brings to those affected by
the AIDS crisis. Today, one thousand people living with HIV and allies from
across the United States rallied in front of the White House to hold an
"inauguration ceremony" for Barack Obama as the president who, during his first
one hundred days, will prioritize policies to end the AIDS epidemic in the U.S.
and worldwide. To chants of "yes we can!" advocates assembled five giant puzzle
pieces representing the key components of the National AIDS Strategy that
President-elect Obama has pledged to develop. Activists then marched to the
transition team headquarters where they congratulated the incoming
administration on Obama¹s bold commitments, and challenged the President-elect
to prioritize implementation of his HIV/AIDS campaign promises from Day One.

"After twenty-seven years of the HIV epidemic, no president has made fighting
AIDS at home and abroad a real priority for his administration," said NYC AIDS
Housing Network member Wayne Stark, who spoke at the rally. "President Bush all
but ignored the AIDS crisis in the United States, even while the epidemic
continued to grow, especially in marginalized communities. And, in spite of
recent progress in beginning to remove ideological strings attached to global
prevention funding, the U.S. continues to limit how organizations on the ground
can fight HIV. President Obama has thankfully said he will bring change to the
U.S. AIDS approach."

President-elect Obama has made historically bold commitments to reform and
expand U.S. AIDS policies. His campaign promised to develop a National AIDS
Strategy that includes guaranteed treatment and care for all people with HIV in
the US. The campaign pledge goes on to detail a commitment to housing as an
integral part of HIV services, an end to the federal ban on funding for syringe
, and a call to redirect abstinence-only-until- marriage sex education
funding into honest and accurate programs like comprehensive HIV prevention

Internationally, Obama has promised to build on President Bush¹s global AIDS
plan by removing the ideological strings the Bush administration attached to
prevention funding. Specifically, Obama has committed to end the Prostitution
Loyalty Oath
and to support an evidence-based approach to HIV prevention that
doesn¹t overly emphasize abstinence and fidelity at the expense of condoms. He
has also pledged to increase funding for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and
Malaria, a multilateral program which fights the three killer diseases in over
170 countries and which is facing a major funding shortfall.

"We know President-elect Obama faces challenges, including a financial crisis,
but fighting AIDS must be a top priority" said ACT UP Philadelphia member
Waheedah Shabazz-el, who spoke at the rally. "We are holding an inauguration
ceremony because we share his vision of hope and change, and to show our
support for implementation, in his first 100 days, of the visionary commitments
Obama has made to fight AIDS in the U.S. and around the world."

[i]Today's Inauguration was organized by ACT UP Philadelphia, Africa Action,
African Services Committee, American Medical Student Association, Community
HIV/AIDS Mobilization Project (CHAMP), Health GAP, Housing Works, NYC AIDS
Housing Network (NYCAHN), Proyecto Sol Filadelphia, Student Global AIDS
Campaign and VOCAL-NY Users Union. A list of over 70 endorsing organizations

The UNAIDS PCB NGO Delegation

December 29, 2008

What happened in the 23rd meeting of the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board (PCB) in Geneva, Switzerland, December 15-17, 2008?

The UNAIDS PCB NGO Delegation and observers from civil society helped influence Board decisions and recommendations throughout the meeting. Below is a short overview of the process and decisions made. The full list of decision points and recommendations can be found on web site of the UNAIDS PCB NGO Delegation at http://www.pcbngo.org/pcb/blog/

Thematic session

The 23rd PCB meeting covered many issues. It began with a thematic session on the “The Relationship between UNAIDS and the Global Fund: international technical support architecture and Public-Private Partnerships”. The NGO Delegates to the UNAIDS PCB and a civil society delegate to the Global Fund Board took part in the working group that helped to plan the thematic session and to include civil society partners in the panels.

Many of the discussions centered around the provision of technical support to the Global Fund proposal development and grant implementation. Another session was especially dedicated to the relationship between National AIDS Authorities and the Country Coordinating Mechanisms (CCMs). A final panel focused on public-private partnerships.

One of the decisions initiated by civil society is that UNAIDS update its technical support and capacity development strategy through an inclusive process involving implementing countries and civil society, taking into account all points made and conclusions from the thematic session.

The Board called upon National AIDS Authorities and UNAIDS to invest in the capacity development of civil society to enable their meaningful participation in the work of such authorities and CCMs.

The Board specifically requested UNAIDS to accelerate its work on gender equality (women and girls), and lesbians, gays, bi-sexuals, and transgenders with the meaningful engagement of those communities as well as PLHIV in order to support needs assessments and proposal development by National AIDS programs and Country Coordinating Mechanisms.

New Executive Director of UNAIDS

Peter Piot, who has been leading UNAIDS since its creation in 1996, resigned his post. Michel Sidibé will be the new Executive Director as of 1 January 2009. Peter Piot’s farewell speech can be read at: http://www.unaids.org/en/

In a meeting with Michel Sidibé, the PCB NGO Delegates reminded him that their support for his candidature during the selection process was based on his commitment to lead UNAIDS with a vision centered on GIPA, human rights and the critical role civil society plays in the global response. We also reminded him to address the needs of vulnerable groups and maintain attention to gender equality, and work to achieve Universal Access by 2010.

New Chair and Vice-Chair of the PCB

As of 1 January 2009, the new Chair of the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board will be Ethiopia, with the Netherlands as Vice-Chair and Guatemala continuing as Rapporteur.

New UNAIDS PCB NGO Delegates

The new members of the UNAIDS PCB NGO delegation for 2009 were approved by the Board:
• Alexandra Garita, International Planned Parenthood Federation, Western Hemisphere Region (IPPF, WHR), USA, Delegate for North America;
• Dr. Evan Collins, Ontario HIV Treatment Network (OHTN), Canada, Alternate for North America;
• Dr. Lydia Mungherera, TASO (The Aids Support Organization) Uganda, Alternate for Africa; and,
• Dr. Robert Carr, Caribbean Vulnerable Communities Coalition, Jamaica, Alternate for Latin America and the Caribbean.

Unified Budget and Workplan

UNAIDS work is guided by a budget and workplan that is developed every two years. This unified budget and workplan (UBW) is being updated to focus on results, the impact on cross-cutting issues such as gender equality and human rights, and contain more disaggregated data broken down by country, cosponsor, sex, and age. The NGO Delegation pointed to the evaluation of UNAIDS and the next planning process as entry points for greater results around a human rights framework, increased attention to key vulnerable populations, scale up of prevention and treatment, and gender equality. NGO Delegates called for greater involvement of civil society in National AIDS Strategies and in daily programmatic engagement at the country level. Delegates also used the discussion of the UBW as a place to point out that there is still no Policy Guidance on sex work, despite a key result area to strengthen programming on HIV and sex work. Finally, NGO Delegates pointed out that co-infection with Hepatitis is missing and should be part of a future strategic framework.

In the 23rd UNAIDS PCB meeting, a subcommittee was proposed and approved to prepare the 2010-2011 budget and workplan. This committee will include two NGO members, as well as ten Member States, two Cosponsors and the UNAIDS Secretariat. Their reports will be posted on the UNAIDS website and on the NGO Delegation’s website. The process to appoint membership to this subcommittee is forthcoming.

International Task Team on HIV-related Travel Restrictions

Following the 16th meeting of the Global Fund Board in November 2007, UNAIDS established a task team on travel restrictions with the aim of eliminating policies and practices that restrict travel for persons living with HIV. The task team, co-chaired by Norway and the UNAIDS Secretariat, has 43 Members from civil society, member States UN and inter-governmental organizations. Theresa Violeta Ross Quiroga, a member of the NGO Delegation, has been a part of the task team.

The Board reviewed the report of the group and adopted resolutions to encourage Member States to abolish HIV-specific restrictions on entry, stay and residence. The Board requested that implementation of the recommendations of the report and an update on progress are presented at the next PCB meeting.

The Board agreed that no PCB meeting will be held in a country with HIV-specific travel restrictions.

Increased involvement of civil society in the UNAIDS PCB

The UNAIDS PCB NGO Delegation carried out a focused consultation in September 2008 via an e-consultation in five languages, three focus groups and 25 in-depth interviews in order to present recommendations to the Board on specific actions to further increase civil society participation in the board meetings. The full paper is available on the PCB NGO Delegation's web site at http://www.pcbngo.org/pcb/files/

Based on the consultation, one of the UNAIDS PCB NGO Delegation recommendations was that Member States include civil society in their own national delegations, as was done for UNGASS on HIV in 2008. The Board agreed to encourage this practice.

The UNAIDS PCB NGO Delegation was also successful in its requests that the UNAIDS Secretariat provide road maps for the preparation of key board documents, and ask for board papers 8 weeks in advance. This will allow time for local translation and more consultation with wider civil society.

Finally, the Board agreed that the UNAIDS Regional Support Teams, the UNAIDS PCB NGO Delegation's Communications Facility and the UNAIDS PCB NGO Delegates should work to hold regional caucuses around existing meetings in order to hear concerns from civil society in between PCB meetings.

Gender sensitivity of the AIDS response

The UNAIDS PCB NGO Delegation requested that UNAIDS report back at the next PCB meeting in June 2009, on how it will strengthen its work on helping countries to meet gender equality objectives in their response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. This includes the call to develop needs assessments for women and girls and LGBT communities separately, for country level action, as well as to establish an inter-agency strategy within the UN System to address HIV and women and girls in a similar way to what has been done on sexual minorities. The Delegation also expressed its appreciation for the need for the work with MSM, WSW Transgender, and for UNAIDS to report back in the next PCB meeting on how it is carrying out both of these strategies.

Guidance Note on HIV and Sex Work

The preparation of the Guidance Note on HIV and Sex Work started two years ago. At the 20th meeting in June 2007, the Board recommended that UNAIDS continue consultation with relevant stakeholders, including affected groups, in developing the Guidance. However, at the 23rd PCB meeting, the NGO Delegation’s request to clarify the status of the Guidance was not answered.

Commission on Narcotic Drugs

On the initiative of the UNAIDS PCB NGO Delegation, the PCB adopted a decision requesting United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), as one of the UNAIDS Cosponsors, to work towards an outcome of the UNGASS 2009 review of the World Drug Problem that accurately reflects the importance of decreasing HIV transmission and co-infection among people who use drugs.

This is a good opportunity for global civil society and the harm reduction community in particular to try influence the global dialogue to ensure that UN drug policy takes into account HIV-related issues.

Reminder: What is the PCB again?

The Programme Coordinating Board (PCB) is the governing body of UNAIDS. It is made up of 22 voting Member States, the 10 Co-sponsors that make up the UNAIDS program, and NGO Delegation (consisting of one delegate and one alternate from each of 5 regions). For more details, including background papers, you can visit the PCB NGO Delegation's web site http://www.pcbngo.org/pcb/about/index.php?s=10 or http://www.unaids.org/en/AboutUNAIDS/Governance/default.asp

The Sexual Rights Initiative (SRI) looks for organizations, researchers and/or activists interested in producing brief reports (5 pages) on pressing concerns in their countries with respect to Sexual Rights issues, including – but not limited to- reproductive rights, sexual diversity, sexuality education, HIV/AIDS, etc- to be submitted for the 7th round of the Universal Periodic Review in the UN Human Rights Council.

We look for organizations, activists and/or researchers who:

- Work on Sexual Rights as a broad notion, and/or

- Work on any issues engaging rights to sexual autonomy and free and full decision-making as to all matters of sexuality and are willing to “think outside the box” of their particular area of expertise to approach Sexual Rights as a whole notion.

- Live and work in any of the following countries ONLY (as these are the countries to be reviewed):
San Marino

- No institutional affiliation is required for individuals applying as activists/researchers but if the activist/researcher is affiliated with a particular organization/network and wants to submit her/his report on behalf of the group, it will be acceptable to SRI.

- If, for whatever reason, the organization, activists and/or researcher wants to remain anonymous, SRI will submit the report only on its own behalf.

Those applicants with the required profile will be asked to sign a contract where their obligations as well as ours will be outlined. They will also receive full instructions to draft their reports and “model” reports to take as reference. SRI will pay an honorarium of US$ 500 to the organization, activist and/or researcher.

The Report can be written in English or French.

This is an Affirmative Action initiative. Women, Trans and Intersex people, as well as those younger than 30 will be given priority consideration. However, this should not discourage qualified men as well as all persons older than 30 from applying as they will also be considered if no suitable priority applicants exist for a particular country/countries.

Please send us your organization’s mission, a a brief description of your current activities or your Resumé if you are applying as an individual activist/researcher, as well as (in both cases) a brief note explaining why you are interested in this initiative to: alejandra [ät] mulabi.org

We will receive applications ONLY until JUNE 30. Please feel free to write to us in English, French or Spanish.

About us:

The Sexual Rights Initiative (SRI) was created in 2006. Its aim is to create a political space for advocacy on sexual rights by bringing together feminist, LGBTI, southern and northern perspectives and incorporating diverse views without privileging particular experiences. The collaborating partners are Action Canada for Population and Development (ACPD), Creating Resources for Empowerment in Action (CREA), Mulabi – Espacio Latinoamericano de Sexualidades y Derechos, Polish Federation for Women and Family Planning and others.

The major forum for our work is the United Nations Human Rights Council that offers many more opportunities for State and non-state actors to influence the development and implementation of international law and standards through the United Nations human rights mechanisms. It is an increasingly important venue to develop and advance sexual rights as a critical part of the international human rights framework.

The Sexual Rights Initiative aims to work in a collaborative manner that is based on genuine sharing and open discussion around issues of power, access and resources. It intends to frame sexual rights as both a set of particular rights and as a cross-cutting issue, including the traditional framework of sexual and reproductive rights issues (reproductive rights, HIV/AIDS, sexual orientation and gender identity and so on), but also analyzing sexual rights within a comprehensive human rights framework. Hopefully, it will result in stronger and more comprehensive international legal norms that will in turn be implemented at national and regional levels.

Michel Sidibe, the Executive Director of UNAIDS,
in his speech on 24th PCB meeting stated:

    “punitive laws that discriminate against men who have sex with men, sex workers, injecting drug users, migrants and people living with HIV
    must be removed from the statute books,
    country by country”.

It is a significant positive shift in a general trend of recent years. Visit this the UNAids site for more on sex work related issues on 24th Meeting of PCB UNAIDS:

Sexworker Konferenz Bali

Sex workers statement to ICAAP 2009

Endorsed by 80 sex workers from 14 countries, 8 August 2009


1. Sex Work is Work, we demand our work be recognized by Government and all groups in society, including religious institutions. Decriminalise sex work and recognise ALL sex workers; male, transgender and female. Criminal laws lead to abuse by police, army and Government officials, and reduces access to HIV support, sexual health and human rights. Remove non-labor officials as regulators of our work. USAID funding policy must include the specific needs of male and transgender sex workers.

2. Sex workers are central to all sex worker policy – we are the leaders, listen to us. Independent, accountable, autonomous, transparent sex workers organsiations/networks/groups that represent their community, are central to HIV prevention and the human rights of sex workers as an affected community. Sex workers sharing experiences and supporting one another across the Asia Pacific has developed a strong movement with a long history. More sustainable resources allow for our organizations to advocate sex worker issues to the HIV sector, domestic Governments, funding bodies and the UN.

3. Sex workers live with dignity; Ban Ki Moon urges: “We can remove punitive laws, policies, practices, stigma and discrimination that block effective responses to AIDS” Ratify CEDAW and recognise the rights of women who work as sex workers. Male and Transgender sex workers must also be protected from discrimination. Children of sex workers and sex worker parents and guardians have rights; end the removal of sex workers children. Sex workers who use drugs are a part of our community and deserve equal respect and access to services and support. Law reform for sex workers must include anti-discrimination protections.

4. The US Trafficking In Persons Report is inaccurate and perpetuates the conflation of sex work and trafficking. Anti-trafficking laws reduce safe avenues for sex worker mobility, increase vulnerability and result in police, army and NGO unfounded “raids,” forced “rescue” and deportation. The proliferation of UN agencies and NGO’s investing in anti-trafficking policy has seen replication, inefficient use of resources and systemic exclusion of sex workers from leadership. Sex workers demand the US Administration repeal the 'The Pledge' and recognise sex workers as experts on the issue of our own migration.

5. Sex workers living with HIV have a right to work and participate in the broader sex worker and HIV community. Criminalisation, mandatory testing and the 100% Condom Use Policy infringe upon sex worker rights. Fulfill commitments to universal access to ARV’s, care and treatment, STI services and sex worker driven and led organising.

Sexworker Konferenz Bali - Forts.

Sexworker fordern Verbesserungen bei der Veranstaltungsorganisation

Wir die Sexworker auf der ICAAP 2009 fordern die Inklusion mehrere Sprachen auf der ICAAP 2011

ICAAP (Intl. Congress on AIDS in Asia and the Pacific) verschwendet Mittel, wenn es so viele Menschen zusammenbringt, aber nur von den englischsprachigen Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt wird. Die Mehrheit der Sexworker aus dem asiatisch-pazifischen Raum spricht jedoch kein Englisch - die Mehrheit ICAAP soll sich in anderen Sprachen ausdrücken können, um die gesammte Region repäsentieren zu können.


Die Dolmetscher müssen die Sprache der Sexarbeit berücksichtigen und dürfen nicht mit klinischen Ausdrücken die Community beleidigen und ihre Moral mit der Übersetzung dem Plenum aufzwingen.


Es braucht ein Sexworker Komittee welches über Sexwork spezifische Präsentationen und Teilnahme-Stipendien entscheidet.

Wir wollen nicht daß Nichtsexworker über Sexwork Projekte vortragen. ... Wir fordern daß Sexworker über Sexworker Angelegenheiten vortragen.

Wir lehnen die Vielzahl unterschiedlicher Bezeichnungen für uns ab. Wir sind weder zerstückelt noch hierarchisch - Wir sind die Sexworker Gemeinschaft, die in Solidarität zusammensteht und verlangt so behandelt zu werden.

Mehr Stipendien für Sexworker müssen verfügbar sein. Ferner Stipendien für von der Sexworker Gemeinschaft ernannten Übersetzern, die die Sexworker begleiten. Es sollen keine Teilstipendien sondern nur Vollstipendien gegeben werden.

Hoffentlich können einige Forderungen auf der kommenden Großveranstaltung umgesetzt werden:

BeitragVerfasst: 2009-09-05, 03:55  Beitrag #39/138     Titel:  Betroffene einbeziehen  Nach untenNach oben

Hier hatten wir über den Deutsch Östereichischen AIDS-Kongress (DÖAK) 2007 berichtet, weil er direkt vor der Haustür stattfand (Frankfurt).

Dieses Jahr beim Schweizerisch-östereichisch-deutschen AIDS-Kongress (SÖDAK) 2009 in St. Gallen gab es einen Eklat mit Rückzug der Betroffenengruppen der HIV+, die sich nicht mehr angemessen inkludiert und vertreten sahen unter all den Pharmaforschern, Medizinmanagern, Ärzten, Sozialarbeitern und Gesundheitspolitikern...

Dabei ist die ganze AIDS-Hilfebewegung in den 80er Jahren von schwulen Männern losgetreten worden, als der Hauptbetroffenengruppe, die man damals in Lager einsperren wollte (Maßnahmenkatalog von Peter Gauweiler in München).

Aber erst 1998 bei der Welt Aids Conference in Genf wurde das Geneva Principle verabschiedet:

    Community involvement in the planning of an International Aids Conference is as important as that of the scientific community and that representatives of both groups should participate on an equal footing towards this goal.”

Doch jetzt mit den AR-Therapiemöglichkeiten einer nurmehr chronischen Krankheit scheint es eine Normalisierung zu geben, die sich im politisch-sozialen Feld allerdings als Regression zeigt.

Die zahlreichen Stakeholder (Betroffene, Helfer, Forscher...) entwickeln sich auseinander, Errungenschaften geraten in Vergessenheit und der Dialog schläft ein.

Community Beteiligung

z.B. durch
- Formulierung gesellschaftsrelevanter Themenkreise und Fragen im Vorfeld
- Scholarships und Reisestipendien für Betroffene und Aktivisten
- Angemessene Veranstaltungsformate für Stakeholder und Betroffene
- ...

Plenarvortrag von Prof. Rolf Rosenbrock vom Wissenschaftszentrum u. Charité in Berlin:

Was wäre die Rolle der Sexworker auf HIV/AIDS-Kongressen?
- Sexworker als betroffene Infizierte (wenige).
- Sexworker als Zwangsuntersuchte.
- Sexworker als einzige Gruppe, wo Kondombesitz gefährlich sein kann (Indiz verbotene Prostitution).
- Sexworker als Sexual Health Experten.
- Sexworker als Safer Sex Edukatoren.
- Sexworker als Safer Sex Kommunikatoren (Kontaktanzeigen)
- Sexworker als Multiplikatoren (Mobilität, Migration).
- ...

Kommende Fachtagungen:
Welt-Aids-Konferenz in Wien 2010
SÖDAK in Hannover 2011

Wie sieht es mit Community Involvement
bei der kommenden Welt AIDS Konferenz in Wien aus?
