Cambodia’s HIV/AIDS response is focused on key populations at higher risk, including entertainment workers, or female workers in entertainment establishments such as beer gardens or karoke bars who may be indirectly engaged in sex work and vulnerable to HIV infection. There is growing recognition that stigma and discrimination undermines efforts to provide HIV prevention, treatment and care. This toolkit, adapted and tested with local organizations in Cambodia, includes participatory, educational exercises that can be used with a wide range of individuals and groups to stop stigma and discrimination toward entertainment workers.
