Pictures Codes for Sex Workers [Namibia]

Picture codes are materials that are used to stimulate a discussion about specific issues like behavior that puts people at risk of HIV infection.

The picture code has a photograph on one side showing people in different situations and on the other side has questions for the field worker to ask to stimulate a discussion. Underneath the questions are ‚Äútalking points”or information the field worker can share with participants

These pictures codes depict several situations sex workers might find themselves in, such as having too much alcohol, having sex in unsafe places, STIs, negotiating condom use, prevention of mother to child transmission, getting tested, taking your medication, and breastfeeding.
