    HIV/AIDS and work; global estimates, impact on children and youth, and response - 2006

    01 January 2006

    This ILO report presents updated estimates of the impact of the HIV epidemic on the world of work, the labour force and the working-age population in 60 countries in all regions. It also gives particular attention to the effects of the epidemic on employment growth, the persistence of child labour, the sexual exploitation of children and youth, and the need for youth to have access to decent work. In complement, the report examines a range of rights-based responses. For the first time, projections of mortality losses and the effects of illness on the labour force and the working-age population take account of increased future access to antiretroviral treatment, and show the benefits for the world of work.

    Global reach: how trade unions are responding to AIDS

    01 January 2006

    The report is the result of an unprecedented joint campaign launched by global union federations in 2003 which aims to mobilize union members worldwide in the response to AIDS. This report provides an overview of how trade unions are responding to the challenges of AIDS. It presents 11 case studies from around the world which show the breadth of action by trade unions in responding to the HIV epidemic. The 11 case studies show how trade union members, many of whom are deeply affected by the epidemic, are mounting bold imaginative responses to HIV in the workplace: challenging stigma and discrimination, addressing the factors that increase vulnerability and risk, providing care and treatment, educating their members on prevention, and building worldwide coalitions that lobby governments for more robust commitments to responding effectively to the disease.
