Certaines organisations membres dispensent des services, d’autres se concentrent sur les actions de plaidoyer ou se mobilisent pour tenter d’améliorer les conditions de vie des travailleurSEs du sexe ; toutes combattent les violations des droits des travailleurSEs du sexe qui mettent en danger leur santé et leur bien-être.
