New resource: Experiences and Tips in Community-Led Monitoring – Accounts from SWAN Members
We have a new resource available, sharing our member’s experiences of Community Led Monitoring.
The goal of this resource is to provide momentum to extend Community-Led Monitoring (CLM) in programs with sex workers in our region, to share experiences and inspiration amongst our members. The material compiles experiences of community-led monitoring (CLM) that have been implemented by Legalife-Ukraine and Tais Plus, Kyrgyzstan. It reveals the specifics of CLM in programs with sex workers and overviews the recent trends around CLM along with perspectives to build CLM systems, train and advance CLM skills, and suggestions for advocacy.
This material will be also helpful for NGOs providing services to sex workers, helping them to better understand sex workers’ community priorities and perspectives. International partners will get insights about the actual challenges and needs of sex workers-led organisations, so that they might plan further, supporting CLM initiatives that can realise the actual scale of CLM, which is often underestimated with its results often not taken carefully into account.
This resource has been prepared in the framework of the project “Moving Together Towards Quality and Equality: Improved Sustainable Services for ISPs in EECA”, implemented by the Consortium of EECA networks – Eurasian Harm Reduction Association (EHRA), Eurasian Women’s Network on AIDS (EWNA), Eurasian Coalition for Health, Rights, Gender and Sexual Diversity (ECOM), Sex Workers’ Rights Advocacy Network (SWAN), funded by the Robert Carr Foundation, 2022-2024.
