Handling of HIV/AIDS in the workplace


To date, the HIV/AIDS epidemic has affected some 38 million people globally. In certain countries and regions - particularly in Africa - the epidemic is so widespread among the working population that it has a direct impact on the labour market and individual companies.

Other regions - particularly Eastern Europe and Asia -are facing serious HIV/AIDS epidemics, which may have an impact on companies and the labour market in the longer term.

At the international level, a number of companies have initiated HIV/AIDS programmes to help their employees and reduce their costs.

This booklet contains practical suggestions for a corporate strategy for HIV/AIDS. It maps the spread of HIV/AIDS in the year 2004 with special focus on the significance of the epidemic for companies, provides guidance for companies in formulating an HIV/AIDS policy and suggests how to implement a prevention and care programme in practice.
