Summary
The aim of this study is to describe the experiences of and challenges faced by five nongovernmental organizations in eastern Europe and central Asia, which developed effective practices and implemented promising HIV and sexually transmitted infection prevention programmes for sex workers and their clients. The programmes' key objective was to decrease sex workers' vulnerability by improving their overall well-being and supporting their empowerment. All organizations operate in low-resource settings and their experiences can be helpful in initiating and moving forward similar projects.
