Kyaterekera Project (2018-2023)

The Kyaterekera Project is an innovative combination study intervention that adds economic empowerment components to traditional HIV risk reduction (HIVRR) sessions to reduce new incidences of sexually transmitted infections among female sex workers and provide alternative means of safe and sustainable income to replace sex work.

The study is implemented in 7 districts of greater Masaka and will involve 990 women engaged in Sex work (SESW).  The study is implemented by Washington University in St Louis in partnership with Reach the Youth Uganda and Rakai Health Sciences Program.
