VCT@WORK: Together, making it happen in Africa!

More than 8 million people living with HIV are accessing the antiretroviral treatment enabling them to live longer, healthier and more productive lives. However, an estimated 7 million people currently eligible for treatment are not accessing it. An estimated 40% of people living with HIV globally, do not know their status, thus preventing them from accessing treatment (source: UNAIDS).

Across Africa there is a growing recognition that employment and empowerment are the keys to breaking the bonds of poverty and promoting dignity for all. And throughout the continent, there are successful efforts taking root that are grounded in African initiative,energy and creativity.
Success Africa is an attempt to share some of those stories and describe what can happen through the coordinated efforts of governments, employers' and workers' organizations, international agencies and donors to make decent work a reality. It offers a chance to learn about innovative efforts to support more people living in poverty with the tools to build better lives for themselves and their families.
