    India: Ending the Stigma of HIV/AIDS for Construction Workers

    17 June 2010

    In India, construction is one of the fastest growing sectors engaging a large number of migrant workers from across the country. With little knowledge about HIV, and culturally and socially isolated in India’s big cities, migrant workers are especially vulnerable to HIV infection. Informal workers, including migrant workers, make up 93 per cent of India’s 400 million-plus workforce. How to tackle discrimination towards workers with HIV and help prevent the spread of HIV have become a national priority, with the adoption of a national policy on HIV/AIDS and the world of work.

    India: Fighting Child Labour with School Lunches

    11 June 2010

    In the past 10 years, more than 30 million children have been taken out of child labour. But according to the ILO's Global Report, today an estimated 215 million children are still working, on the streets, in farm fields, in some of the worst and most hazardous forms of work. Integrated national policies to protect children, get them out of work and into school have made an impact, moving the international community closer to its goal of eliminating the worst forms of child labour by 2016. One way forward can be found in India, and the world's largest school lunch program.
