Six members of OMES will participate in surveying a population of 600 female sex workers.

The mapping consists of a study of workplaces, behaviors and situations experienced by female sex workers, and includes monitoring of the services offered to female sex workers by NGOs and health centers.

Fellows from OMES actively participate of the process from the beginning. At first were advisors and later became the executors of the project, for which they were trained by the university.

“In December is expected to have the results of the findings, which will serve as evidence for continuing advocacy in health centers in the various departments of Guatemala”, said from OMES.
