Scarlet Alliance is a national organisation of state-based associations and advocacy groups for sex workers. It formed in October 1988, at the first National Sex Industry Conference, as the National Forum of Sex Worker Rights Groups. The name Scarlet Alliance was adopted in September 1989 after Australia's first sex worker rights group which had formed in Adelaide in 1977. As a member of the Australian Federation of AIDS Organisations it advocates for safe sex education programs to protect workers from the Human Immunodeficiency Virus / Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS) and more generally for legal reform and safe working conditions for sex workers.
