Related to HIV and sexual health ESWA, EATG and LEGEBITRA (Slovenia) have joined efforts to develop eMPOWER, a programme to overcome the challenges of online learning and empower youth actors in the field of sexual health promotion in the COVID-19 era. This project runs until September 2022. During the pandemic, it appeared more and more clearly that mental health and especially access to mental health care is an important issue within the sex worker community. While dismantling the idea used by abolitionists that sex work and mental health issues are systematically related, ESWA wants to look at the impact o structural issues on mental health such as criminalisation and offer tools to the community to deal with mental health issues.
