Strengthening HIV Prevention, Care, Treatment and Social Protection in the World of Work - Final Evaluation

Good Practice Description

The use of holistic ILO tools such as HealthWise or SOLVE offer good entry points for addressing the topic of HIV. These tools allow organizations to mainstream HIV work into OSH. These makes it easier for ILO to approach organizations or companies and persuade them of the benefits they will receive from the methodology. Once HIV is mainstreamed into OSH it is easier to build sustainability for the approach.

The use of peer educators is a particularly effective means of achieving acceptance of the HIV message. This is especially so if the educators are persons living with HIV.
