Input from Sex Workers Will Define Advocacy Strategy in Poland

TADA, SWAN member from Poland, recently adopted a new system to collect data on social and health problems of sex workers, their access to social and medical services and opinion about legalization of sex work.
TADA’s aim is to identify the main problems of sex workers in the different regions of the country. Data analysis will point to the advantages and disadvantages of possible legalization of sex work. More

Data are being collected through every contact TADA has with sex workers - on the streets, in the agencies, and in the clubs.
Says Tatiana Duklas, the TADA President: „Data collection will enable us to get sex workers’ input on legalization - we will learn about their fears and expectations. We hope this knowledge will help is to draft a roadmap for the future advocacy”.
TADA’s previous experience is that sex workers are afraid of legalization, fearing lost of unemployment allowances. They also fear that their registration would effectively reveal their profession to the public and make them victims of strong social stigmatization.
