Red Umbrella Athens (RUA) offers a wide range of services to adult sex workers and advocates for sex workers' rights. It is the only service provider addressing the needs and vulnerabilities of sex workers in Greece and operates a drop-in center, located in the center of Athens. The beneficiaries of the drop-in center have access to HIV, HBV and HCV rapid testing, peer-to-peer empowerment and psychosocial support services, legal support and referrals to other expert organizations, services and professionals. RUA also develops harm reduction interventions and collaborates closely with our outreach teams (see Streetwork Project Athens).
The operation of RUA is both community- and evidence-based, with the long-term goal to be led and operated solely by members of the community it serves. RUA’s team has already core members who work or have worked in different areas of the sex industry, as well as people living with HIV/HCV/HBV, and/or people who use (or used) drugs.
All services provided are free of charge.
Languages supported: English, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese, Farsi, Urdu, Arabic.
