OTRASEX works on promoting the human rights of ciswomen and trans sex workers. The group focuses on labour rights, sexual and reproductive health, promoting self-care and addressing stigma and discrimination against the sex worker community. The group also provides training and sensitisation workshops to the military, the police force and health centre professionals about the rights of sex workers. This union of women domestic workers trains its members on labour rights issues and mobilises them to advocate for the ratification of ILO Convention 189 on decent work for domestic workers.
