An HIV and AIDS Workplace Policy for the Education Sector in Southern Africa

Meeting document | 01 January 2006
This policy is based on the ILO code of practice on HIV/AIDS and the world of work, adopted by an international tripartite meeting convened by the ILO in 2001, and includes key concepts and principles of the ILO code of practice. Development of the policy has resulted from collaboration between ILO and UNESCO. The policy was reviewed and modified during a tripartite workshop held in Maputo, Mozambique, 2005. For more information, see [meetings web page].

The purpose of this policy is to provide a framework for addressing HIV and AIDS as a workplace
issue in education sector institutions and services through social dialogue processes, complementing
other national workplace or overall education sector policies where they exist.
