Says Tijana Pavicevic, Coordinator of the Juventas Harm Reduction Program: “Our first Project dedicated only to sex workers started in February 2007. The goal of the Health and Opportunities Project is prevention of HIV and other sexually transmitted and blood born infections among sex workers, with outreach work as main activity. The other aspect is education and rising sensitivity of police officers about these topics.”
