Sex workers in Mwanza district have received a boost as the district’s council has revealed plans to recognise them and help improve their trade.

The sex workers have been allowed to form a grouping which will be recognised by the Mwanza district council.

The council hopes the female sex workers alliance will give the sex workers opportunities to find solutions to problems they face in the course of their trade.

Mwanza District Aids Coordinator, Pearson Mphangwe said the move will help curb the spread of HIV and Aids in the border district.

He said only female sex workers who are mobile, are operating from their homes, and are open about their sex work will be allowed to be members of the alliance.

Mwanza experienced a boom of sex workers in 2013 during the construction of Moartize-Nacala railway line that has passed through the district, according to a 2013 Survey Report on Projects and HIV and Aids.

Meanwhile, Medicines Sans Frontier through a Malawi Model and Key population intervention Project has managed to reach out to 2,427 sex workers and 3,294 truck drivers with HIV services.

Medical Activities Manager for Medicines Sans Frontier, Bote Zamadenga said the number of sex workers reached with HIV activities last year has been increasing from 506 in January to 960 in March.

He further said the number of truck drivers that have also been serviced with counseling services has also gone up from 186 in January to 486 truck drivers late last year.

Zamadenga explained that female sex workers and Long Distance Truck Drivers are the main target of the project whose aim is to provide them with tailor made and comprehensive HIV and TB interventions along the corridor.

He said in Malawi the services are provided in three sites namely Mwanza District Hospital, Wellness Center, Mwanza Boarder and Zalewa clinic in Neno district.
