Structural Intervention

STRUCTURAL INTERVENTION THROUGH CONTRACTUAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN ‘PIMPS’, GOVERNMENT

Due to the clandestine nature of sex work in Bali, ‘pimps’ are notoriously uncooperative in assisting in HIV&AIDS prevention initiatives, such as 100% condom use, and until recently government bodies have been extremely reluctant to work together with the sex work industry in the fight against HIV&AIDS. The involvement of all implicated bodies (pimps and government departments) through the creation of a collaborative contractual agreement is a very effective strategic move, especially with regards to HIV&AIDS information dissemination and encouraging 100% condom use within female sex worker communities in Bali.

With the National AIDS Commission (NAC) and the Department of Health (DOH) Denpasar, the Kerti Praja Foundation lobbied implicated government bodies: village heads, local police and others in the 100% condom program. A previously successful model from Malang involved a formal contractual agreement between pimp representatives and local bodies concerning 100% condom, STI/HIV testing, including incentives and sanctions for infringements.

Since February 2009, the Kerti Praja Foundation has held a number of meetings resulting in signed agreements, stating: pimps must provide condoms, insist on condom use, encourage female sex worker screening, information on HIV&AIDS and STI prevention through timetabled information sessions.
