FIMIZORE - Fikambanana Miaro ny Zon’ny Rehetra – Madagascar

Since its inception in 2005 the principal objectives of FIMIZORE (an abbreviation for “Organization for the Protection of the Rights of All”) have been to reduce vulnerability of sex workers to HIV, sexually transmitted infections, stigma, and gender-based violence, with a focus on the protection of human rights. The organization provides training on human rights, challenging discrimination, preventing HIV and on laws related to sex work. It facilitates access to essential services, and works to change policies that have led to discrimination against sex workers. As a network of fourteen organizations in ten cities in Madagascar, FIMIZORE reaches 15,000 female sex workers and 2,000 men who have sex with men. These efforts have initiated a change of attitude among the police force, doctors, and the community as a whole, and have increased the number of sex workers who actively monitor their health status.
