Building capacity of NACO/SACS

NACO endorsed the ILO Code of Practice for use in HIV/AIDS policy and programmes in the world of work in India. Tools/posters were developed for advocacy to enhance workplace interventions and private sector engagement.

The ILO programme collaborated with selected State AIDS Control Societies, supported them in engaging a dedicated staff for coordinating workplace programmes, developed some enterprises based interventions in partnership with SACS; and shared its communication and training materials. Several SACS translated and reprinted the ILO posters for use in their programmes.

ILO also assisted NACO in developing guidelines for strengthening workplace HIV/AIDS programmes. The NACO guidelines were issued to all State AIDS Control Societies in April 2006. The ILO HIV/AIDS workplace programme materials and tools were shared with NACO/SACS.
