No more unprotected sex on sale, Prostitutes declare
16 December 2015, 15:12
Kampala - Ugandan sex workers have resolved that they will no longer provide services that involve unprotected sex.
They have said that in the past some of them have been accepting this type of sex because there are some of their clients who insist on only unprotected sex even if it means paying more money.
To overcome that, they have formed an organization called ''Uganda women human rights network '' in which they can save money and later borrow to solve their problems.
The coordinator of the organization Diana Natukunda says that unlike in the past, they can now use the money from the organization to solve their problems.
''Once we have our own money, we can not dance to the tune of our clients. We can now insist on always using condoms. If a client insists on unprotected sex so that he pays us more money, we tell him to go away because we can not risk our lives, said Natukunda.
The prevalence of HIV-Aids in Uganda is highest among sex workers. Despite the national average being at 7.4 per cent, among sex workers it is at 9 per cent.
