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

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.
