Sex workers have a greater need for counselling with respect to HIV and STI prevention due to their heightened risk of becoming infected with sexually transmitted diseases and HIV. Most sex workers are migrants from different countries who have come to Germany to work. They often have no health insurance and therefore no access to the health system.
Together with female colleagues at the P.I.N.K. counselling centre and at the Freiburg municipal health department, we pay regular visits to these persons at the places where they work. Our information material is available in several languages and provides information on sexual health and support options available for sex workers in Freiburg.
