New Project for Sex Workers in Altay_ru

Siberian Initiative from Barnaul in Russia started a new HIV/AIDS prevention project in the Altay Republic.

Its main objectives are provision of access to professional health services and testing, distribution of information about and promotion of lower-risk behaviour, and establishment of a self-support group of HIV-positive sex workers.  This is the first time ever for such activities to be organized in the Altay region.  Sex industry is particular for the republic due to its well-developed tourism.  If successful, the project might be a model for similar initiatives in smaller towns and villages in Russia.  So far, similar work has been done only in bigger regions and cities in this country.
