The Smart Sex Worker’s and Drug User’s Guide


This Smart Guide is a quick reference for sex workers and people who use drugs to help understand the transition from Global Fund financing. It explains what the process is, how it works and why it is happening. It highlights the risks as well as the (few) opportunities there may be for a responsible transition, and suggests actions for engaging in the transition process. It will help the community ensure the continuation of rights-based health and social care programming for sex workers and people who use drugs after a country transitions out of Global Fund financing or away from other external donor financial support.
