C-change, a Washington, DC-based group, visit members of the CSW and MSM community and peer educators last month to identify and discuss issues facing both communities. The consulation lasted for two weeks giving each group three days to meet and discuss issues specific to each. Based on the discussions is evident that little work is being done to protect each group from further discrimination and vulnerability of being HIV/AIDS infected, however there is room for great improve. Based on the consulations the organizing group identified safe and danger zones for both groupn interestingly the home was identified as one of the major danger zone for a lot of young CSW and MSM. All three groups were engaged in message design and strategic was to promote sex safe within the communities whether on coasters as parties,party tickets or through new media The consulation was a smart move by the group as I offered a chance to directly hear the diverse views of the community.
