    Trade unions lead the VCT@WORK in Ukraine

    12 June 2017

    Ukraine has one of the fastest growing rates of HIV infection in Europe. The HIV prevalence in the adult population is 0.9 at the end of 2015. The highest incidence of the disease is among young and working age people. Only 54 per cent of people living with HIV know their HIV status. In order to reduce the HIV testing gap, the ILO is implementing the voluntary counselling and HIV testing initiative for workers —VCT@WORK—since 2014 in Ukraine. Trade unions have been in the front in driving the VCT@WORK Initiative in Ukraine, adopting a regional and sectoral approach.
