Welcome to SAfAIDS
The law is not doing what it is supposed to do, that is to protect every citizen. Instead of being protected, they are regularly detained by police without charge and at times have to secure their release through barter of sex for freedom. Imagine, this is 2015 and we are now moving to SDGs yet sex workers have to barter trade to secure their freedom! If the law cannot protect them, then who will?

NAIROBI, 27 October 2015 (allAfrica) - One remarkable thing about recent media reports of school-going adolescents boldly indulging in all manner of sexually egregious behaviour is the general absence of discussion about how we got here, and how we can prevent such behaviour among our children and youth.
