TAMPEP – European Network for HIV/STI Prevention and Health Promotion among Migrant Sex Workers



TAMPEP is an international networking and intervention project operating in 25 countries in Europe, including 10 countries in Central and Eastern Europe.

It was founded in 1993 in response to the needs of migrant sex workers across Europe. It operates within a community development and participation model, which is rooted within the equality and human rights framework, lays the foundation for equitable access to support and services for migrant sex workers and seeks to give voice to migrant sex workers.

Our focus is on assessing the situation and needs of female and transgender sex workers of Central and Eastern Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America, and on developing appropriate responses. The project reaches persons from more than 60 different nationalities.
