National Harm Reduction Technical Assistance Center (NHRTAC) Training Deck on Sex Worker Health and Harm Reduction
The National Harm Reduction Technical Assistance Center (NHRTAC) Training Deck on Sex Worker Health and Harm Reduction is a learning tool designed to provide an overview of the basics of sex worker health and harm reduction philosophy. The SWHHR 101 learning tool consists of the PowerPoint Slide Deck, Facilitator Guide, Training Handout, and a Sample Engagement Page. These materials are customizable for in-house staff training purposes. This project was designed for use by health departments and community-based syringe services programs (SSPs) to introduce participants to sex work, sex worker health, and the intersection of harm reduction. Upon completing the training, participants will be able to define sex work and harm reduction, define who participates in the sex trade, identify barriers to care for people who trade sex, and understand strategies to address anti-sex worker stigma in organizational practices.
