HIV/AIDS is a workplace issue because it impacts employees and the families, enterprises and communities that depend on them. While the disease affects people during their most productive years, employees who are treated successfully remain an important part of the workforce. Companies in high-prevalence countries have seen improvements in morale, productivity and staff turnover when they actively address HIV/AIDS.
Employers can promote HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention by developing anti-discrimination HIV/AIDS policies and providing prevention and transmission education materials, treatment services and voluntary counseling and testing for employees.
