The VCT@WORK initiative builds on four fundamental pillars:

Multi-disease testing: To de-stigmatize HIV testing and facilitate increased uptake of VCT services, HIV testing will be promoted through integrated and multi-disease initiatives.

Strategic partnerships: Country partnerships will be forged with Ministries of Health, National AIDS Councils, private sector, VCT Providers, ART Centres, Networks of PLHIV, Civil Society Organizations and others.

Social mobilization: National world of work actors such as Ministries of Labour, employers’ organizations, workers organizations’, business coalitions and enterprises will be mobilized to promote VCT in or through workplace structures.

Monitoring and evaluation: Country monitoring and evaluation systems will be adapted to track progress. A number of complementary monitoring approaches will be used to track progress. Good practices will be documented and disseminated.
