    Public-Private Partnerships in HIV prevention and care in India

    17 May 2012

    Partnerships are at the forefront of all ILO activities in the field of HIV and the world of work. The success of the ILO in reaching thousands of workers at risk of, or otherwise affected by HIV, can be attributed to its strong collaboration with a large number of bilateral and multilateral partners. The ILO’s experience with its corporate group partners in India shows that the average cost of a prevention programme covering a workforce of around 10,000 people would be around USD 9,000. That translates to an average annual cost of USD 0.9 per person, which is much lower than the cost of first-stage drugs of USD 19 per person per month.
