Gender inequity is a pervasive global challenge to health equity. Health promotion, as a field, has paid only limited attention to gender inequity to date, but could be an active agent of change if gender equity became an explicit goal of health promotion research, policy and programmes. As an aspect of gendered health systems, health promotion interventions may maintain, exacerbate or reduce gender-related health inequities, depending upon the degree and quality of gender-responsiveness within the programme or policy. This article introduces a framework for gender-transformative health promotion that builds on understanding gender as a determinant of health and outlines a continuum of actions to address gender and health. Gender-transformative health promotion interventions could play a ificant role in improving the lives of millions of girls and women worldwide. Gender-related principles of action are identified that extend the core principles of health promotion but reflect the ificance of attending to gender in the development and use of evidence, engagement of stakeholders and selection of interventions.
The project aims to help support people working in the sex industry and provides a range of support including:. Outreach DWWP runs an assertive outreach 2 times per week on our specially equipped van to engage and see on-street workers as well as doing selective home visits for those workers who have requested support.
On outreach we provide food, harm minimisation supplies, support with incident reporting, general advice and posting.
We also hand out essential items such as toiletries, hats, gloves, socks, umbrellas and hot drinks. During outreach we can speak to sex workers about the latest information on any risky dodgy punters. We can also take reports on any violent incidents for the National Ugly Mug Scheme. We also post sex workers to our drop in as a result of seeing them on outreach sessions.
Off-Street We support those who work off-street including at home, in flats and other venues. Our specialist off-street workers can arrange regular visits for anybody wishing to receive support from DWWP. This includes harm minimisation, advice on online safety, advice and support on reporting, access to National Ugly Mugs, sexual health screening and supplies.
DWWP is for all women who work, or have ever worked, in any area of the sex industry, and provides information, advice and support on all work related issues. For further information contact Pauline Smyth at pauline. Women cannot access the outreach van i.
