HIV and AIDS and the World of Work in Jordan

Within the framework of the Jordan World AIDS Day campaign 2011, these workshops are intended to improve the capacity of the government and social partners to respond timely to the HIV/AIDS challenges at workplace and to give effect to the ILO Recommendation (No. 200) for 2010, concerning HIV and AIDS and world of work.

Within the framework of the Jordan World AIDS Day campaign 2011, these workshops are intended to improve the capacity of the government and social partners to respond timely to the HIV/AIDS challenges at workplace and to give effect to the ILO Recommendation (No. 200) for 2010, concerning HIV and AIDS and world of work.

These two workshops will provide a platform for tripartite discussions between ministry of labour, workers and employers representatives on HIV and world of work toward the development of a joint national policy to support the implementation of the HIV/AIDS National strategic Plan (2012-2016) and ensuring social protection and preventing workers from HIV discrimination.

The objectives are to mobilize and assist governments, employers' and workers' representatives to respond appropriately and effectively to HIV and AIDS in Jordan, specifically to increase HIV/AIDS awareness and create an appropriate policy framework for a comprehensive response to the epidemic in the world of work; and to provide advocacy and technical support to governments, employers, workers, civil societies to start up a response on HIV/AIDS.
