MPs happy with sex worker plan

Members of Parliament’s social development portfolio committee are so impressed with a sex workers’ support programme in Durban that they want it replicated in other provinces.

The MPs visited a Morningside organisation, NGO Lifeline, to learn about its Thubalethu Sex Workers Programme, which offers emotional wellness support and encourages sex workers to get tested for HIV and Aids.

The committee’s chairwoman, Yolanda Botha, said once a report had been compiled about their visit to KwaZulu-Natal, she would recommend that the national Department of Social Development assist other provinces to establish an organisation that would have similar operations to Lifeline’s.

“Sex workers are a national problem, but I have noticed that other provinces don’t even have programmes like these,” she said. “This is a challenge everywhere and as a committee we would like the programme to be expanded.”

The organisation’s director, Pravisha Dhanapalan, said the programme used “peer educators” – most of them former sex workers – to help identify places where sex workers operated.
