S.e.x workers banned from having permanent boyfriends. The Chiredzi based anti-HIV s.e.x workers peer educators group argues that this is necessary to prevent the further spread of HIV/Aids and s.e.xually transmitted infections. The group has over 1000 registered members.
A peer support group for women in engaging in the world’s oldest profession, s.e.x work, is strongly discouraging prostitutes from having permanent boyfriends.
Speaking to New Zimbabwe, Constance Mada who is the group peer educator explained the reasoning saying. We…discourage the idea of having a permanent boyfriend because, at the end, there are high risks of the partners getting used to each other and ending up having unprotected s.e.x.
We also encourage the s.e.x workers to get tested for HIV and how to deal with rogue clients as some of them end up being raped and robbed. Mada who works under the auspices of the National Aids Council and Ceshaar sponsored programme revealed that the establishment of a Sisters Clinic had allowed s.e.x workers to get better access to health care. The s.e.x workers were avoiding local clinics due to the discrimination and harassment they face from the health personnel. Said Mada,
In our books, we have 1 148 registered s.e.x workers that we meet every Wednesday sharing information on the profession. We also use social media to disseminate information and this has helped quite a lot.
…If we look at our records in 2014 and now, we can see that Chiredzi no longer leads in new STI infections because of the prevention programmes that we are conducting under NAC in educating s.e.x workers in protecting themselves and distributing condoms for free.
In 2014, new STI infections were very high countrywide, but this has since gone down due to information and services that we are offering to girls of the night in town. Mada, however, bemoaned the fact that many of the younger s.e.x workers are disregarding the group’s advice as they suspect that it is just a ploy to target their clients,
However, the major challenge we still have is that of young girls who don’t want to listen to our advice thinking that we are after their clients. Most of them do not listen to our advice and we are receiving four new young s.e.x workers here every day.
