Since 2011 the ILO has established a programme along the country's major transport corridors that provides HIV prevention and care services for transport workers and populations operating along these corridors, and business-related services that enable vulnerable populations to start or improve their business, form cooperatives and access funds to improve their resilience to the impacts of HIV.
