Gender Equality - Human Rights and Sex Work in the Caribbean

Authors/editor(s): UN Women

The development of this policy brief is one component of a UNIFEM project on 'Legal and Policy Analysis on Sex Work in the Caribbean' funded by UNAIDS.

The objective of this work is to contribute to the development of rights-based, gender-responsive multi-sectoral responses that would ensure universal access to prevention, care, treatment and support.

The policy brief was informed by the input of a number of agencies and individuals and by consultations with representatives of organisations representing persons engaged in sex work: Robert Carr, Caribbean Vulnerable Communities Rachel Charles, CRN+ Flavia Cherry, CAFRA Dona Da Costa Martinez, Family Planning Association of Trinidad and Tobago Miriam Edwards, Caribbean Vulnerable Communities Claudette Johnson, Caribbean Vulnerable Communities Deborah McFee, Centre for Gender and Development Studies, UWI Althea Perkins Rhoda Reddock Tracy Robinson Karen Sealy and Dawn Foderingham, UNAIDS Leisa Perch, UNDP Carmeta Douglin and Tammy Yates, UNFPA
