summary of the project/activity methodology with an estimated timetable for completion of activities (not) exceeding one page) :

ِAIDS, like a forest fire, can spread very quickly causing a lot of destruction to the society. In Egypt, prostitution is forbidden by law, however, it is widely practiced within private circuits. Access to prostitutes is usually obtained by word of mouth through porters, tourist guides, hotels staff, etc. there is no accurate information about its magnitude. Egypt is an open society compares with other Arab countries. So there is a great deal of tourism from other wealthy but less open societies, i.e. gulf area. Particularly in Cairo and Alexandria, any prostitutes has exposure from clients of many countries.

The impact of education and services directed at prostitutes on the prevention of the spread of HIV infection in the rest of the society will be much greater the earlier they are applied.

The first stage of the project proposed training of 20 social workers working for the ministry of interior handling cases of prostitution. They will be trained on counseling of prostitutes. Training will include:
• information on modes of HIV transmission.
• The problems face the prostitutes.
• Impact of prostitution on the society.
• Educate prostitutes to change their profession.
• Inform prostitutes how to protect themselves and their clients from AIDS.

Methods :
• Short lectures.
• Group discussion.
• Brainstorming.
• Working groups.
• Role play.

Implementing a program for AIDS control among high-risk prostitutes and their clients is complex. There is a number of political, cultural, legal, economical, psychological and sociological implications which must be forcefully considered in planning a successful inter-venation. In Egypt where prostitution is not legal, intervention programs will be mere difficult but by no means impossible. However, the more difficult the intervention is judged to reach this population or to change the behavior of prostitutes and their clients, the more essential it is to start on this difficult task as soon as possible.

Egyptian AIDS society (EAS) in a non-governmental organization. It was funded for fighting AIDS and care of it’s patients. The first objective was set to educate youth and community about AIDS . E.A.S. participated in different activities concerning disseminating AIDS-related information like seminars, training courses, workshops.. etc.

In this project EAS will contribute with 2000 L.E. in addition to the secretarial support.

The proposals will be assessed on the following basis :
a) The extent to which the proposal meets GPA/NACP strategy, “prevent sexual transmission of HIV” (note that HIV or primarily spread through sexual intercourse)
b) Soundness of objectives, work-plan, budget sustainability , facility for monitoring and evaluation and the NGO’s skills and experience.

They are not well educated, earn a good amount of money which expose them to more risk factors than others. One of the most important factors is abuse of drugs which becoming a large problem in Egypt. Sharing needles is an essential mode of prostitutes is a second risk factor facing them.
