SWAN News Become an International Source

Over the past five months, since its inception, the SWAN News has been posted or partly quoted by several civil society portals and websites. Every issue is regularly being linked from the websites of the International Committee on the Rights of Sex Workers in Europe (ICRSE, www.sexworkeurope.org) and the Sexual Health and Reproductive Rights Program of the Open Society Institute (SHARP, http://www.soros.org/initiatives/health/focus/sharp). Recently, German Parliamentary Forum on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights republished a SWAN News story on the establishment of the National Network for the Rights of Sex Workers in Lithuania – see http://www.deutsches-parlamentarisches-forum.de/71.html?&cHash=f5cc8ca0bc&tx_ttnews[backPid]=61&tx_ttnews[pointer]=5&tx_ttnews[tt_news]=84. The group was founded April 29, 2004 in Berlin and has committed itself to the Program of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICDP) in Cairo in 1994. The central objective of the program is the sustained fight against poverty in developing countries with a main focus on the situation of women and girls in the world. The demand for sexual and reproductive health and rights lies at the heart of the program.
