    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.

  6. 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.

  5. Best practices in HIV/AIDS prevention, in the informal sector

    11 March 2005

    This paper is based on experiences from the ILO’s four-country study on HIV/AIDS mitigation in the informal sector. It considers “best practices” that have been identified in workplace policies and programmes on HIV/AIDS in the informal economy. It focuses especially on examples which might guide and inform practices and policies pertaining to the informal economy with regard to the following: information and awareness-raising programmes, training and behavioural change programmes, working conditions - including aspects such as travel, hygiene, childcare arrangements - counselling and testing, care and support possibilities. The paper gives an overview of good practices taken from the four countries in which the ILO informal economy research project was carried out. Quantitative and qualitative studies, including participatory rapid assessments, were carried out in Uganda, Ghana, Tanzania and South Africa. The studies were conducted (a) to gather necessary KAPB data from informal workers in the four countries and (b) to initiate participatory, community-based approaches with the aim of organising governments, local governments and local communities to implement a sustained response to the challenges of the HIV/AIDS epidemic within the informal economy.
