    HIV/AIDS Behaviour Change Communication – A toolkit for the workplace

    01 January 2005

    To address the objective of reducing HIV/AIDS risk behaviours among workers, the ILO has collaborated closely with Family Health International to build upon FHI’s expertise and experience to develop a Toolkit on behaviour change communication adapted to the dynamics of the workplace. Behaviour change communication (BCC) is an interactive process that helps to understand the target population, develop a focused strategy, and produce tailored messages, which are delivered using a variety of communication channels to promote positive behaviour. The Toolkit provides a step-by-step approach, emphasizing prevention through education, gender awareness and practical support for behaviour change. Its intended users are government authorities, employers’ and workers’ and their organizations, businesses, ILO/AIDS National Project Coordinators, national BCC consultants and collaborating NGOs.

    Pay equity, minimum wage and equality at work

    01 November 2003

    Professor Jill Rubery was commissioned by the ILO to write this Working Paper, as an input for the preparation of the 2003 Global Report on the elimination of discrimination in the world of work2. The establishment of a floor to the wage structure is of paramount importance to groups of workers discriminated on grounds such as sex, ethnicity, national origin, age and disability, as these groups are disproportionately represented at the bottom of the occupational hierarchy. By identifying the role that minimum wages can play in reducing gender discrimination in pay, Jill Rubery’s paper contributes to our understanding of the forms of labour market processes compatible with the promotion of non-discrimination, equality and decent work.

    03 April 2003

    The ILO’s most comprehensive study to date on discrimination, this timely report argues that the benefits of eliminating discrimination in the workplace transcend the individual and extend to the economy and to society as a whole. While the most blatant forms of discrimination at work have faded, the report reveals that many remain a persistent and daily part of the workplace or are taking on new, more subtle forms that are cause for growing concern
