Context: (quoted from the briefing paper) "The Love Alliance programme seeks to significantly reduce HIV infections by influencing policies, raising awareness, and organising key population communities in ten African countries, with a specific focus on LGBT+ people, people who use drugs, female, male, trans and gender diverse sex workers, and people living with HIV. NSWP, as one of the global advocacy partners in Love Alliance, commissioned national consultants from sex worker-led organisations (and a women’s network in the case of Morocco) in ten African countries to better understand how the sex work laws in those countries are enforced and what impact this has on sex workers. The ten countries, spanning the entire continent, were Burkina Faso, Burundi, Egypt, Kenya, Morocco, Mozambique, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda, and Zimbabwe."
