    Newsletter of the Sida-funded ILO programme on HIV/AIDS prevention and impact mitigation in the world of work in Sub-Saharan Africa. Issue number 3, October 2009

    03 October 2009

    This issue provides insight into how cooperatives are responding to HIV/AIDS by building economic resiliency to mitigate the impact of the epidemic. One feature tells the story of how an Ethiopian woman was able to increase her livelihood thanks to the ILO Start and Improve Your Business programme. Another story focuses on activities by the cooperative project in Cameroon aimed at improving the quality of life for women affected by HIV/AIDS. A feature from Tanzania highlights the need for better entrepreneurship skills, a reminder that high levels of poverty and HIV prevalence in project areas are closely linked. Finally, two articles on the transport sector response underscore how the impact of the ILOAIDS/Sida programme is resonating far beyond the sector itself.

    Prevention of HIV/AIDS in the World of Work: A Tripartite Response. A documentation of Good Practices.

    01 September 2009

    India’s National AIDS Control Programme aims to develop a multisectoral response to HIV/AIDS. Mainstreaming HIV/AIDS in key ministries is seen as a key strategy. The Central Board for Workers Education (CBWE), an institution of the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Government of India, reaches out to 300,000 workers annually through its workers’ education programmes. CBWE, with support from the International Labour Organization (ILO), has mainstreamed HIV in its programmes that reach workers in the formal as well as informal economy in India. This case study provides insights into the process, experiences and lessons of the way CBWE has mainstreamed HIV/AIDS in its programmes.

    Cross-Country Study of the ILO/USDOL HIV/AIDS Workplace Education Program: Strategic HIV/AIDS Responses in Enterprises (SHARE)

    01 November 2008

    This study of SHARE, Strategic HIV/AIDS Responses in Enterprises, was jointly conceived by the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the United States Department of Labor (USDOL) to gather insights into the project and to inform future programming. The following target countries were selected based on availability of sufficient data, global geographic dispersion, and prevalence (both low and high) in the target countries: Barbados, Benin, Botswana, Cambodia, and India. The outcome of the ILO/USDOL SHARE project demonstrates that an effective government response to HIV in the world of work should be characterized by a tripartite structure (involving ministries of Labor, and employers' and workers' organizations) with an ability to reach workers and mobilize enterprises for the prevention of HIV. Effectiveness is further enhanced by the multiplier effect of this approach, with the positive impact filtering through families and communities.
