Effective responses to HIV and AIDS at work: A multi-country study in Africa

This ILO study presents a comprehensive assessment of the characteristics that make HIV and AIDS workplace initiatives effective.

It examines the elements that distinguish successful workplace initiatives and provides a range of examples showing how workplace initiatives contribute to:
- enhancing knowledge about HIV prevention and modes of transmission
- building workplace capacity to address and manage the impact of HIV and AIDS at work
- increasing access to voluntary HIV counselling and testing in or through the workplace
- reducing HIV-related stigma and discrimination and
- increasing uptake of anti-retroviral treatment.

The study compiles the results of research conducted between January 2013 and October 2014 in public, private, formal and informal workplaces across 10 African countries: Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Kenya, Madagascar, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Senegal, South Africa and Zambia.
