Community Organization Educates Sex Workers In Mozambique About HIV/AIDS Prevention

The Guardian: Mozambique sex workers learn to put life before money as HIV rates increase
“… ‘We tell the women: first life, then money,’ says Esperanza Malumbe, the founder of a local community-based organization, Abavamo, which aims to educate and empower Mozambican sex workers. … Abavamo not only hands out condoms and femidoms to the women, but also teaches them how to negotiate safe sex with men. And, if a client cannot be convinced, then there are strategies for that too…” (Ellison, 12/12).
