HIV/AIDS EDUCATION PROGRAMME

The Ministry of Labour implemented its HIV/AIDS Education Programme in 2001 in accordance with the government’s strategic plan to reduce the incidence and level of HIV/AIDS through the introduction of a comprehensive programme on the management, prevention and control of the disease.

The objectives of the programme are:

  1. To promote a supportive ethical and human rights environment in the workplace for people living with and affected by HIV and AIDS.
  2. To reduce the vulnerability of the formal and informal sectors of the workforce through large-scale sensitisation of constituents.
  3. To reduce the incidence of discrimination against persons living with HIV

Resulting from these actions, it is expected that there will be a reduction of:

  1. Stigma and discrimination against persons living with HIV and AIDS
  2. The incidence of HIV and AIDS amongst all workers
