Programme on HIV and AIDS: Final programme fact sheet

People with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) often suffer from stigma and discrimination. The ILO through its HIV and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) Programme explores partnerships towards facilitating workplace-based HIV interventions while working with the Philippine government, employers and workers.

The ILO mobilizes governments, employers’ and workers’ organizations through its tripartite structure to create jobs, protect the rights of workers, oppose discrimination, and improve social protection and occupational safety and health. The HIV and AIDS Programme also consciously involves stakeholders other than the ILO’s tripartite partners, such as local government units, non-government organizations, HIV positive communities, and other private institutions, particularly those who have existing programmes on HIV, to optimize use of resources and improve the uptake and sustainability of HIV interventions introduced by the Country Office for the Philippines (CO-Manila).
