Information and prevention for the “Commercial sex workers”

Italy - Caserta area

A mobile unit for information and prevention.

Facilitating access to health services in the area, increasing knowledge of sexually transmitted diseases and how to avoid them: these are the goals of our project aimed at sex workers in Caserta, southern Italy.

Our team – consisting of a nurse, a cultural mediator and a driver – carry out information and prevention activities in an extremely deprived area.

Many of the women visited by our staff – of various nationalities: Nigerian, Romanian, Bulgarian, Ukrainian, Italian, Russian, Albanian, Polish… – do not have a GP; most have never had access to the public health service, they do not know what a clinic is and do not know their health rights.

The mobile unit was created thanks to the donation of SPI CGIL.
