‘Science Speaks’ Highlights Communication Guides About TB, Sex Work

Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks”: “Case?” “Suspect?” “Trafficking?” “Industry?” We’re reading guides on how to talk about TB, write about sex work
Antigone Barton, senior editor and writer of “Science Speaks,” discusses the Stop TB Partnership’s release of a “guide to language and usage for tuberculosis communications … intended to both inform and stimulate discussion around how the disease is discussed, responded to, lived with, and survived.” Barton also discusses the release of a “guide for journalists and writers produced by Sonke Gender Justice, Sex Workers Education and Advocacy Taskforce (SWEAT), Sisonke Sex Workers Movement, and Women’s Legal Centre … [which] offers facts, perspectives, responsible wording, and tips for ethical and insightful ways to … communicating with, as well as about, people who earn income through sex” (11/10).
