The Kenya Sex Workers Alliance is committed to examining the strengths and weaknesses of international human rights and domestic legal frameworks as they apply to sex work. The aim is to evaluate the impact of various international and domestic laws and policies on the human rights of female, male and transgender sex workers and their communities.
Sex workers universally claim that their human rights are abused. In some cases this means exposure to violence and barriers to accessing services, resources and justice. In other cases they encounter arbitrary detention, criminal law and lack of access to clean and safe places to live and work in.
