Abstract/Citation: This Code of Good Practice was adopted following the adoption of the ILO HIV and AIDS Recommendation, 2010 (No. 200). It replaces the Code of Practice adopted in 2010 in order to better reflect the provisions in the Recommendation. The revised Code seeks to assist employers' workers' and their organisations in developing appropriate responses to HIV/AIDS, TB and STIs in the world of work in the framework of decent work in both the formal and informal sectors and the private and public sectors.
