We are giving treatment to all the FSW through referrals to private service providers and to Govt. Hospitals. We intend to make this process sustainable through forming and strengthening the Community Based Organisation, so that they will handle the major responsibility of preventing trafficking and trapping under flesh trade and if trapped to redeem them back and if cannot be redeemed, protect them completely from the deadly monster HIV.
